Area Plan program 

(Webpages coming soon) 

Webpages are under development for the Area Plan program.  

Assembly Bill 148, signed on July 22, 2021, transferred state program oversight authority and responsibilities for this program, including the Hazardous Materials Business Plan program, and for the California Accidental Release Prevention program, from the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services to CalEPA. CalEPA is now responsible for evaluating and providing technical assistance for these programs. This webpage will be continuously updated in the coming months with relevant content and information. More program specific information will be posted to this webpage shortly.  We thank you for your patience.
