All facility operators that have disclosable amounts of hazardous materials or any amount of hazardous waste must submit an inventory of these items on CERS as part of their Hazardous Materials Business Plan. In addition, the inventory must be updated any time the quantity of any item on the inventory increases by 100% or more. Even if the inventory quantities have not changed, the inventory must be resubmitted at least annually.
In all cases, you will need to have a CERS account that is linked to the site you are entering inventory items for. If you are entering inventory items one-at-a-time, you will need to log into your account and navigate to the site for which you want to create inventory items.
There are several methods for creating a hazardous material inventory in CERS:
- CERS chemical inventory library
- Manual inventory item creation
- Batch upload with a spreadsheet
CERS maintains a library of chemical inventory items. This video shows how to use create an inventory item from the CERS chemical inventory library.
