DCC regulations

DCC regulations

The Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) makes regulations for cannabis businesses. These regulations specify:

  • What you must submit when applying for a license
  • Rules for running a cannabis business
  • What can and cannot be made into a cannabis product, and what ingredients can and cannot be used
  • Packaging requirements to prevent contamination and inform consumers about what’s inside
  • The testing that each product must pass before it can be sold
  • Enforcement actions that may be taken if a business is not following the rules

Proposed regulations

DCC took two regulatory actions to combine and simplify the previous cannabis regulations within our first two months as a new department. We’re proposing additional changes to streamline and strengthen the regulatory framework.
