Monterey County Environmental Health Bureau (EHB) is requesting all regulated facilities to submit their various hazardous materials-related data to the CERS database.

  • If you currently are regulated by EHB CUPA, we have pre-populated some of your existing facility information into CERS and it is available to you through the CERS Business Portal.
  • Most of our business users will only need to create a CERS account containing a user name and password.
  • EHB staff is also available by appointment to assist business users in establishing a user account in CERS.
  • For newly regulated businesses a new CERS facility will need to be created by going to CERS website.

For assistance contact your Monterey County Environmental Health Bureau Hazardous Materials Specialist at (831) 755-4511.
