Colorado Program Information
The Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) welcomes you to the Colorado Metrc webpage. This site is designed specifically for Colorado Licensees and Stakeholders. It will serve as a resource to acquire the most up to date information with respect to the Metrc system in Colorado. Metrc LLC and the MED continue to work together to ensure we have an inventory tracking system that serves the objectives and mandates of both the State and Licensed community as effectively as possible. We look forward to continuing the work to always meet this goal.

2. Attend a Metrc training class and complete the test.
3. Download, sign and return the API User Agreement to firstname.lastname@example.org and copy email@example.com. This must be signed by a person with signature authority within the company, such as an Officer.
4. Once Metrc receives approval for the API User Agreement, a test vendor API key for the sandbox will be generated.
5. Complete Capability Assessment in the sandbox. A document of the functionality assessment criteria will be provided to you when you submit your request. Requests should be submitted after completion of the Metrc training, not prior.
After these steps are complete and the evaluation is validated, Metrc LLC will issue a production vendor API key. When Metrc sends your production vendor API key, we will also ask for your company and contact information to add it to the Validated Integrator List.
API Vendor Lists
The Metrc Integrator document provides the Colorado Marijuana Industry Licensees with a list of third party companies who are currently participating in the Metrc Application Programming Interface (API) integration program. This list identifies integrators as either Registered or Validated. This list is updated regularly as new companies are approved by the MED.
Registered: Integrators on this list have received Metrc LLC training, instructions and have signed a Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) Confidentiality and User Agreement. These “Registered” integrators have been provided with access to the Metrc API for sales upload.
Validated: integrators on this list have met requirements to be considered “Registered” and have taken the additional step of having demonstrated their ability to perform the functions specified in the validation section. These “Validated” integrators have been provided with access to the Metrc API and can integrate with each area specified.
It remains the responsibility of the Licensee to enter accurate information into the system to comply with all rules and regulations. The “Validated” integrator has demonstrated an ability to perform functions using the Metrc API, but the licensee must always ensure the information entered into Metrc is accurate. As an example, the validation process only verifies the integrator’s ability to successfully “put” a package into the Metrc system, it does not validate whether or not the quantity or unit price of the package is in fact accurate. Industry participants will need to work directly with the member to obtain support for their solution.
If you have questions about this list or the process of becoming “Registered” or “Validated”, including how your business could become validated, please contact Metrc at firstname.lastname@example.org.
