CCRS Timeline, Milestones and Updates
CCRS testing and development has been well underway since our initial communications about the project. The CCRS team has developed some major milestones and goals for CCRS before, during and after launch. With about a month to go before CCRS deployment, please review some of the expectations and upcoming deadlines below.
Third Party Integrator Approval Process
On Oct. 27, 2021, the LCB sent a message to licensees and integrators regarding the newly developed Third Party Integrator Approval Process. Steps for approval were detailed in that message and are listed on the LCB CCRS web page. Integrators interested in being added to the approved integrator list should follow the approval process and submit their applications by Nov. 22, 2021 for full consideration. Integrators currently involved in the testing process will still need to gain approval through the process listed on the LCB CCRS Approval Process web page.
Access to the CCRS Test Environment for All Users Testing access in the CCRS system has been ongoing for the past few weeks. You will continue to have access moving forward for setting up your system and continued testing. Integrators will lose access to the test environment effective Nov. 22, 2021, if they have not followed the Third Party Integrator Approval Process.
LCB will be decommissioning use of Leaf at a later date. Please keep an eye on upcoming LCB communications for more information about the decommission of Leaf for reporting purposes. The LCB will be sending a reminder to stop using Leaf after the successful deployment of CCRS in December.
CCRS Launch Expectations
CCRS will launch the file submission and Manifest web form on Dec. 6, 2021. Licensees will be notified as well when CCRS is live. Reporting should transition to the CCRS and Leaf will be decommissioned shortly thereafter.
CCRS Manifest web form The Manifest form is available for testing until Dec. 1, 2021, you can find it on the LCB website here. The same link will be available for use when the system launches on December 6, 2021.
Communications with the CCRS Team
Staff is monitoring the email@example.com inbox regularly and have continued to update the Frequently Asked Questions page with relevant questions. Please make sure to review the FAQs to see if a submitted question has been answered by a content expert.
The firstname.lastname@example.org is also regularly monitored by Information Technology staff who are working with approved testers to address bugs and issues that have arisen throughout the test process. These email addresses will be decommissioned at a later date, after the successful launch of CCRS.
