Oregon FAQ

Yes all recreational businesses licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission are required to report in Metrc either directly or through the Metrc API.

No, all information in Metrc is private and confidential, only viewable by the licensee and the OLCC.

Metrc LLC was selected based on Oregon’s standard competitive bidding and procurement process.

Timelines for the initial training phases have been developed and will be scheduled based on the timing and approval of license applications. Please see the Oregon page on the Metrc website for updates. Schedule details can be found on the OLCC or the Metrc Oregon website.

Metrc is a completely web-hosted system. That means that all access to Metrc is done via the internet and only requires an internet connection and a web browser. No additional hardware is required. Also, there is no software to download, install, or maintain.

Activities in Metrc can be accomplished without Barcode scanners or RFID readers. Although the use of these tools can increase productivity and efficiencies, it will be up to each licensee to decide to use Barcode or RFID readers, but their use is not required.

The CTS tags have multiple modalities that include human readable information, barcodes and RFID. RFID specifically offers a higher degree of accuracy, improved speed of reading and ultimately makes reporting for both the industry and the OLCC more cost efficient.

Plant tags are .45 cents each and package tags are .25 cents each.

No, each tag is created with a unique ID / serial number associated to a singular plant or package (much like a VIN number on a car). Each ID number is only utilized once to maintain a chain of custody and unique plant or package history.

Reusing the number would create confusion and an inability to track a plant or package properly in the event of an action requiring traceability such as a recall. This traceability is necessary for ensuring public safety, mitigating public health concerns that arise, and ensuring consumers’ protection.

In most states where Metrc is deployed each licensee pays a minimal $40.00 per month fee that provides the reporting, help-desk support, user training, and the ongoing enhancements to the system designed to enhance industry reporting capabilities. However, in Oregon, the OLCC has opted to pay for and include this cost in its support of the Oregon marijuana industry.

Yes, Metrc offers an Interface called an API that allows 3rd party providers the ability to interface. More information is located on the Oregon page of the Metrc website below.

No, Metrc can be used as a standalone system with direct data entry. However, Metrc will be certifying qualified point of sale and inventory management vendors before they’re allowed to use Metrc.

The priority at this time is to ensure that licensees have every opportunity to successfully implement Metrc on a facility-by-facility basis. Once this has occurred, the OLCC will evaluate the need to provide instruction to others outside of the state legally licensed and regulated community.
