The API agreement is between the state and the third-party vendor (TPV). In Louisiana, the API agreement is currently implied. There is no formal document to be signed by the TPV and the state. This may change in the future; you will be notified of such with a deadline to return the agreement to the state.
For third party vendors, the steps to obtain access to the Metrc API in Louisiana are:
Company mailing address
Company website URL
Company phone number
Primary contact’s name
Primary contact’s email address
Primary contact’s phone number
Secondary contact’s name
Secondary contact’s email address
Secondary contact’s phone number
Name of software
4. 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.
5. 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.
