Metrc – Distributors Can No Longer Receive Bulk Manufactured Products
Metrc released a Support Bulletin on November 17 outlining upcoming changes to Metrc functionality. Starting on January 19, 2021, Metrc will restrict the types of products that can be received by each license type. Metrc will be reconfigured to only allow licensees to receive packages with the Item Categories allowed for their license type, as outlined in Appendix A, copied below.
Licensees will no longer be able to receive products in Metrc that they are not permitted to have per the regulations. For example, distributors will no longer be able to receive bulk manufactured products. All manufactured products intended for transfer to a Distributor or Retailer, and all flower intended for transfer to a Retailer must be packaged using an Item Category with a Unit Measure of each. Manufactured products packaged using a Unit of Measure of bulk weight or volume will no longer be transferrable to a Distributor or Retailer. This configuration will change the ability to transfer some packages.
