New Delivery Inventory Ledgers Required to be Created in Metrc Beginning April 1, 2023
Beginning April 1, 2023 cannabis retailers conducting cannabis delivery operations must now create the Delivery Inventory Ledger in Metrc before the delivery employee/driver leaves the licensed retail premises for that delivery trip. This new Delivery Inventory Ledger functionality is already available in Metrc.
What’s “New” About the Delivery Inventory Ledger
The “new” part is that beginning April, 1, 2023, the Delivery Inventory Ledger must be electronically created in Metrc before the driver leaves the premises. At all times the Delivery Inventory Ledger is required to reflect the actual inventory in the vehicle, just like before. All delivery sales must be recorded in Metrc by the end of the same calendar day that the delivery was made.
Here’s a quick high-level summary, but click on the links below to learn more:
- If your point-of-sale system has not developed a Delivery Inventory Ledger that uploads into Metrc, you will need to create your Delivery Inventory Ledger within Metrc directly.
- During the delivery route, the Delivery Inventory Ledger must be maintained either within Metrc our outside of Metrc in either electronic or hard copy, but it must be maintained in real-time so that the ledger is accurate at all times.
- If the Delivery Inventory Ledger is maintained outside of Metrc during the delivery route, Metrc must be updated by the end of the same calendar day that the delivery was made, NOT within 24 hours as required for other types of Metrc entries. Thus, if your delivery driver returns to the premises by 10:00 pm as required, Metrc must be updated by midnight that same day.
