WASHINGTON: The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) has reached a critical juncture in our transition from the current traceability system to the new traceability system. Despite diligent efforts by LCB staff and the new vendor, all critical tasks will not be complete by the end of our contract with the current vendor on Oct. 31, 2017.
- The information that we are requesting via the contingency plan is information that you are currently required to collect and retain;
- There is no halt to business during the contingency period. You may conduct business as usual. That includes transfers, sales, harvest, etc.;
- As you do today, you must keep a record of all required activity associated with your business. If you have a third-party, commercial software provider consider contacting them to review your coverage. Some software systems may capture traceability transactions for later reporting which may minimize your manual reporting requirements.; and
- The LCB will continue to enforce rules and regulations during this period.
