At the Cal-CUPA Forum conference in Universal City on February 7th, Mike Rogge, CMTA's Environmental Policy Director, was named co-chairman of the Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) and Industry Roundtable. The purpose of the roundtable is to establish a forum for open discussion between state and local regulators and the regulated community on issues impacting unified hazardous material, hazardous waste, and underground storage tank programs.

The roundtable meets quarterly and consists of members and representatives of large and small businesses within jurisdiction of the Unified Program, a management representative from the Office of Emergency Services, State Water Resources Control Board, Department of Toxic Substance Control, Office of the State Fire Marshal, United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Cal-CUPA Forum executive committee, and management staff from Cal-EPA's Office of the Secretary.

CUPA’s focus is on enforcement and compliance issues. The roundtable discussions give industry an insight into upcoming issues, an opportunity to discuss problem areas, need for additional training or publicity and suggestions for program improvement and uniform enforcement.

If CMTA members have subjects or suggestions they would like to see discussed at future meetings, please contact Mike Rogge at
