Once the website is up and running, recreational marijuana license applicants and licensees will be able to obtain an individual account for the online packaging and labeling application process. This website will be similar to the state’s other website for the recreational marijuana license applications according to the OLCC.
The OLCC has created a process to evaluate packaging and labeling to determine if it meets the requirements set out by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the OLCC. Recreational licensees who hold a Producer, Processor, Wholesale, or Retailer license and are packaging and/or labeling products for ultimate sale to a consumer must receive approval from the Commission prior to selling or transferring any marijuana item to a consumer. Although, this only applies to marijuana items for sale to a consumer so transfers between licensees will remain unchanged. As for medical registrants who are packaging and/or labeling products for ultimate sale to a consumer, they must receive approval from the Commission before October 1, 2016.
