WSLCB has replaced the traceability system used to implement ‘seed to sale’ traceability provisions with a highly secure, reliable, scalable, and flexible system provided and hosted by a third-party vendor.
MJ Freeway is WSLCB’s contractor for traceability. Its traceability solution, known as Leaf Data Systems, offers the opportunity to modify and advance the system as the industry continues to grow and develop. MJ Freeway has embraced a partnership role with WSLCB to help manage, implement and adjust the scalable system to meet the needs of licensees and the agency.
The new traceability system has three major components:
- Traceability activity reporting
- Compliance reporting
All traceability activities are collected and maintained through a common, publicly available application programming interface (API). The system provides a free, basic web-based user interface for licensees, labs and co-ops to report traceability activities. It also provides an automated way for licensees, labs and co-ops to report traceability activities using third-party software systems.
