As of January 1, 2013, all regulated businesses are required to file and update required unified program information, via the internet through an electronic reporting system, either the Toxics Management Division (TMD) online portal, at www.berkeleycupa.com, or the California Electronic Reporting System (CERS), at http://cers.calepa.ca.gov/.
Currently, electronic reporting is not available to businesses who only have a Hazardous Waste Generator permit with the TMD.
To begin using the TMD online portal, complete the following steps:
Step 1: Please go to the following web address, http://www.berkeleycupa.com/ and click on the link that says "Click here to request a username/password". The Berkeley CUPA Login Request Form will pop up in a new window (ensure that your pop-up blocker does not prevent it from opening). Complete the required fields on the form and then click the Submit button. Please allow TMD four (4) working days to email you your username and password. Also ensure that you add firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe senders list.
Step 2: Following receipt of your username and password, login with your username and password.
Step 3: Follow the instructions to fill out and complete your HMBP.
If you do not have access to a computer, there are computers available at the City libraries or you may schedule an appointment with TMD staff at (510) 981-7460 to use our computer kiosk at our office located at 2118 Milvia Street, Suite 300, Berkeley, CA.
More information about using the online portal can be found in the Electronic Hazardous Materials Business Plan Online Portal Instructions.
Failure to submit required documents by the due date will result in late fees as specified in the Toxics Management Division's Fee Schedule.
