Above Ground Petroleum Storage is regulated at both the city and state level, subject to the Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act. Since petroleum products are a subset of hazardous materials, all businesses regulated under the Aboveground Petroleum Storage Program must apply for and obtain a valid Hazardous Materials Certificate of Registration through the California Environmental Reporting System (CERS). You may notify the Envirionmental Health Hazardous Materials & Waste Program before or after applying through CERS. Prepare a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan. The SPCC Plan is a written plan that details the procedures, equipment, and workforce commitment necessary for a business to prevent and contain oil discharges from their facility.
