New Required OMMP Reporting System: OHA Offers Presentations

Pin It

By OCC Staff

A series of presentations will be done by the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program at the Oregon Health Authority relating to the reporting of medical marijuana products.

The new reporting rules took effect March 1, 2016 (under OAR 333-008-0630, 333-008-1248 and 333-008-1830) and they now require growers, dispensaries and processors to report information about the production and transfer of cannabis to OMMP.

To accomplish this, the OMMP program has developed a new mandatory “inventory reporting system” that will be implemented to track the transfer of cannabis and cannabis products to dispensaries. In a OHA news release, they explained the presentations will address, “guidance and training on how to use the system, what information must be reported, and clarification on transfer rules.”

After the 45 minute presentations they are offering around the state (see below), they will stay to, “assist growers with setting up online accounts.”

As soon as July 10th, online submissions are due for transfers that occurred during June 2016, and subsequent reporting is due every month. Also, under OAR 333-008-0630, reporting requirements do not apply to a patient growing only for him or herself at his or her residence, unless the patient is transferring usable marijuana to a registered processing site or dispensary.
