Any new facility submitting a Hazardous Materials Business Plan (HMBP) in CERS will be invoiced based on applicable programs, along with an $85 administrative application fee. Existing facilities will only pay their annual operating permit invoice mailed out July 1 annually. The fees per program element are as follows:

Business Plan

Each business required to submit a business plan pursuant to California Health and Safety Code Section 25500 et seq. shall pay the following annual administrative fee per facility:

Volume/Weight of Hazardous Material (for solid-only, liquid-only, gas-only, or unit based):

  less than 5,500 gal or;
less than 20,000 ft³ or;
less than 50,000 lbs or;
less than 5,500 units
5,500 to 55,000 gal or;
20,000 to 200,000 ft³ or;
50,000 to 500,000 lbs or;
5,500 to 55,000 units
greater than 55,000 gal or;

CB7A – Annual Insp $820 CB8A – Annual Insp $1,240 CB9A – Annual Insp $5,490

 

Fees shall be determined by a combination of bulk quantities per facility, number of storage locations at a facility and the frequency of inspections determined by risk as described below.

Facility Volume/Unit Score Determination

The weights of hazardous materials at a facility shall be determined by summing weights of all solids (exceeding the reportable quantity) in pounds. The liquid volume of all hazardous materials at a facility shall be determined by summing the volumes of all liquids (exceeding the reportable quantity) in gallons. The gas volume of all hazardous materials at a facility shall be determined by summing the volumes of all gases (exceeding the reportable quantity) in cubic feet at standard temperature and pressure. For example, liquefied petroleum gas (propane) can be reported in pounds.

For calculating amounts of materials, liquefied petroleum gas (propane), aqua ammonia, and liquid oxygen will be calculated in gallons; anhydrous ammonia and chlorine shall be reported and calculated in pounds.

The above table may be used “as is” for facilities that have only solids, or liquids, or gases. Facilities having a mixture of solids, liquids, or gases in an inventory shall assign a “unit score” from the sum of the solids and a sum of the liquids and a sum of the gas and then add the unit score to determine the base fee using the following methodology:

Unit scores are assigned by using the ratio of the thresholds (liquid threshold is 55 gallons, solid threshold is 500 pounds, and the gas threshold is 200 cubic feet) of the materials and summing the unit scores. One gallon of liquid is equal to one unit, one pound is equal to 0.11 units, and one cubic foot is equal to 0.275 units.

55 gallons X 1.0 = 55 units
500 pounds X 0.11 = 55 units
200 cu-ft X 0.275 = 55 units

To calculate the facility’s unit score, multiply the gallons in your inventory by 1, multiply the pounds by 0.11, and multiply the cubic feet of gas by 0.275. Then add the calculated unit numbers together. If the unit total is less than 5,500 units, the facility would be categorized as “small”. If the unit total is between 5,500 units and 55,000 units the facility would be categorized as “medium”. If the unit total is greater than 55,000 units, the facility would be categorized as “large”.

Example: If a facility had a mixed inventory of 4,000 gallons of liquids, 10,000 pounds of solids, and 15,000 cubic feet of compressed gases, the calculation would be as follows:

4,000 gallons X 1.0 units/gallon = 4,000 units
10,000 pounds X 0.11 units/pound = 1,100 units
15,000 cu-ft X 0.275 units/cu-ft = 4,125 units
Total = 9,225 units

The unit score for this facility would be 9,225 units for the total inventory, therefore classifying this facility into the medium category.

Inspection Frequency/Risk Determination*:

Annual inspections shall be conducted at businesses that handle one or more chemicals found on Table 1 or 3 in Title 19 of the California Code of Regulations, Division 2, Chapter 4.5, Article 8, Section 2770.5, and that exceed the threshold quantities of those chemicals as defined in California Health and Safety Code Section 25503.5 et seq.

Biennial inspections shall be conducted at businesses that handle one or more chemicals found on Table 2 in Title 19 of the California Code of Regulations, Division 2, Chapter 4.5, Article 8, Section 2770.5, and that exceed the threshold quantities of those chemicals as defined in California Health and Safety Code Section 25503.5 et seq., or the facility handles explosives.

The biennial inspection criteria does not apply to facilities handling propane (LPG) at less than 50,000 pounds unless there are mitigating circumstances or other criteria warranting placement into this or a higher inspection criteria. The biennial inspection criteria does not apply to facilities handling acetylene at less than 5,000 cubic feet unless there are mitigating circumstances or other criteria warranting placement into this or a higher inspection criteria.

Triennial inspections shall be conducted at businesses exceeding the threshold quantities as defined in California Health and Safety Code Section 25503.5 et seq., and no other criteria or mitigating circumstances trigger a higher risk category.

* Facilities may be placed into a higher risk category if they are out of compliance for more than three months or at the discretion of the Director of Public Health, based upon site specific and hazardous material specific circumstances.

Facilities are categorized by the severity of the risk posed and the complexity of the process. Risk is divided into three tiers and is correlated with the definitions found in Part 68 of Subchapter C of Chapter I of Title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

  • “Low Risk” facility shall mean the same as a Program 1 facility as defined in Part 68 (commencing with Section 68.1 (b)) of Subchapter C of Chapter I of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Low risk CalARP facilities will receive a CalARP inspection triennially.
  • “Moderate Risk” facility shall mean the same as a Program 2 facility as defined in Part 68 (commencing with Section 68.1 (c)) of Subchapter C of Chapter I of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Moderate risk CalARP facilities will receive a CalARP inspection biennially.
  • “High Risk” facility shall mean the same as a Program 3 facility as defined in Part 68 (commencing with Section 68.1 (d)) of Subchapter C of Chapter I of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. High risk CalARP facilities will receive a CalARP inspection annually.
  • “Simple Process” shall mean a facility using one or more chemicals in a simple process.
  • “Complex Process” shall mean a facility using one or more chemicals in a process that involves any of the following: multiple valves and piping, process reaction vessels, or processes that are temperature and/or pressure dependent.
  • “Special Complex” shall mean a facility that manufactures or refines a product or is determined to utilize multiple complex processes and is categorized as “high risk.”
