The Unified Program Violation Library is a repository of standard violation descriptions Unified Program Agencies (UPAs) may use in their field inspections, and must be used by Unified Program Agencies (UPA) when reporting violation detail data to the California Environmental Reporting System (CERS). UPAs must either report violation information directly into the CERS user interface or via machine-to-machine electronic data transfer (EDT). The violation library is reviewed and modified as necessary on an annual basis, using the change management process. For more information about the Unified Program Violation Library please contact CalEPA Unified Program at CUPA@calepa.
The Unified Program Violation Library serves as a compilation of common violations for consistent reporting purposes only. The Unified Program Violation Library is not an exhaustive list of all violations and the inclusion, or non-inclusion, of any specific violation implies nothing and shall be construed as a policy statement, interpretation or guidance from CalEPA or any of its Boards, Departments or Offices. The Unified Program Violation Library is not a legal document containing any advice, and under no circumstances shall the State of California be liable for any actions taken or omissions made from reliance on any information contained herein.
