Citadel was contracted by Target Corporation to review the requirements of the California Certified Unified Program Agencies in anticipation of updating the companies Hazardous Materials Business Plan for all Target locations. The California Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) is a local agency that has been certified by the California Environmental Protection Agency to implement six state environmental programs within the local agency's jurisdiction. The Unified Program is inclusive of the Hazardous Materials Inventory and Business Emergency Response Plan.

Citadel conducted hazardous materials site surveys, safety audits, as well as prepared Hazardous Materials Business Plans that included compiling “CUPA Requirements and Jurisdiction” and “Thresholds for Reporting” forms, and agency-specific reporting forms for the local agencies within the jurisdiction of each Target location.

The Hazardous Materials Inventory and Business Emergency Response Plan Program regulate the use and storage of hazardous materials by business and industry. Chemical Inventory Title 42, Section 11022 of the United States Code and Chapter 6.95 of the California Health and Safety code require the reporting of hazardous materials when used or stored in certain quantities (greater than 55 gallons of liquid, 500 pounds of solids, or 200 cubic feet of compressed gases). A Chemical Inventory was generated for all Target stores that disclosed all hazardous materials stored, used, or handled on site. This disclosure information assists emergency responders in planning for and handling emergencies which involve hazardous materials. The program objective is to safeguard lives and minimize property loss.
