SERC – State Hazardous Chemical Emergency Response Commission

In response to EPCRA planning requirements, the Utah legislature enacted the Hazardous Chemical Emergency Planning and Inform Act, which established the “Hazardous Chemical Emergency Response Commission”  (known informally as the State Emergency Response Commission or SERC) and authorized the Commission to carry out all EPCRA requirements. The Commission is composed of representatives from the Utah Department of Public Safety and the Department of Environmental Quality.


 The commission’s meetings are held quarterly.

The next SERC meeting will be held on June 21, 2022 at 1:00 p.m.
