As of 5/1/2020, licensees will not be able to create a new package in the California CannabisTrack and Trace system (CCTT-Metrc) without a source package.

As part of the transitional period to allow temporary licensees not using CCTT-Metrc to conduct business with provisional and annual licensees using CCTT-Metrc, the requirement to create a package from a source package was suspended. As there are no remaining temporary licensees in California, CCTT-Metrc will be reconfigured on 5/1/2020 to only allow licensees to create a package from an existing source package.

If you currently have cannabis or cannabis products on your premises that are not tracked inCCTT-Metrc, you must assign a UID tag to these items by 5/1/2020. As of 5/1/2020, you will no longer have the ability to assign new UID tags to untagged inventory. Please note that all licensees are required to immediately begin working within the CCTT-Metrc system, and the electronic inventory in CCTT-Metrc must accurately reflect the physical inventory located at a licensed premises.

The section below describes the change to the application when this change is implemented.

New Packages

Currently, when creating new packages, the recording of a contents package, sometimes referred to as a source package, is optional. When this change is implemented, users will not be able to create a package without identifying the package being pulled from to create the new package, as it will be a required field as shown in Figure 1 below.
