DCC has taken the first step, in a multi-step process, to consolidate and streamline the regulations applicable to commercial cannabis licensees.
The Office of Administrative Law (OAL) has approved the Department’s action to move the commercial cannabis regulations of the Bureau of Cannabis Control, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and the Department of Public Health into one central location in the California Code of Regulations (CCR). The consolidated regulations can now be found at CCR, title 4, division 19, sections 15000 through 17999. In addition to section numbers changing, other minor technical changes have been made to the regulations, such as referencing the Department, instead of the prior licensing authorities and updating section and subsection numbers based on the chapters they are in.
There have been no changes to the requirements in the regulations. These regulations will govern all commercial cannabis licensees until the Department takes additional actions to consolidate and streamline the regulations.
