Integrating CalOrigin’s application programming interface (API) with the METRC system in California will streamline compliance for cannabis industry stakeholders
“For operators, the METRC certification means that, by submitting data to the local CalOrigin system, they can fulfill their requirements to both local and state-level regulators.”
The certification of CalOrigin’s API marks another positive step in SICPA’s ongoing efforts to support operators and provide local officials and regulators with viable options for establishing local regulatory frameworks that don’t adversely impact operators and other industry stakeholders.
Once government regulators approve cannabis business licenses, licensees are given access to a secure, online system that allows them to share key information with other system users across the supply chain.
Through a combination of counterfeit-resistant, tamper-evident labels and the secure online system, products are tracked starting with individual plants, through various product transformations, and all the way to point of sale. As a product moves through the supply chain—from cultivator to manufacturer to distributor to dispensary—additional detail is added to the online system in association with each unique label. This creates a map of a product’s journey through the supply chain in a secure online system.
The secure labels also connect patients and consumers to product information through the CalOrigin smartphone app and online platform (http://go.calorigin.org). Patients and consumers use these tools to make sure a label is valid, retrieve product details, see test results and more.
