Final Inspections

Final inspections are done at the end of the application process before LCB issues a license. 

During the final inspection a member of our Enforcement and Education team will visit the location.  Enforcement Officers and Compliance Consultants are there to make sure you are in compliance. They are also your points of contact after receiving your license for any questions you have or assistance you may need.  Some of the items verified during the inspection include:

  • The layout of the location matches the submitted floor plan.
  • There is adequate camera coverage (no blind spots in required areas).
  • The surveillance system is functioning and properly secured.
  • The premise is not connected or combined with a residence or another business.
  • Cannabis product is secure from public/customer access.

If there are any issues found during the final inspection, the Enforcement Officer and/or Compliance Consultant will advise applicant about what needs to be corrected and will return to complete the inspection at a later date.

Your Enforcement and Education contact will also take time with you to cover laws and rules related to your license.  They will cover common topics you need to know to be in compliance and successful.  This is a great opportunity to get to know your Compliance Consultant or Enforcement Officers, and ask any questions you may have.

Once licensed, applicants will also be able to request a Compliance Consultant visit for any additional questions or concerns about owning a cannabis retail location.
