Ordering and Receiving METRC tags
Order Package and Plant UID Tags
The designated account manager will be able to order the package and plant tags electronically in Metrc by selecting the Tag Orders option from the Admin menu in the top navigation bar.
Note: If you have more than one license, you will need to order the tags under each license, as each tag will be tied to each specific license. No additional payment is required for the tags, as the cost is included in the license fee.
When tags are physically received, mark the tag order as Received in Metrc. Tags must be documented as “received” in Metrc before they can be assigned to a product. No product can be entered before receiving the tags from Metrc.
- There are two types of tagged inventory in Metrc: plants and packages. Each unique identifier (UID) tag uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) transponders that allow for automatic remote reading and identification of the tagged product. The tag numbers allow Metrc to track and trace all cannabis products through the commercial cannabis supply chain. Information embedded in the tags includes the facility name, business license number, the date the tag was ordered, a unique 24-digit identification number, and a bar code that matches the identification number programmed on the RFID.
- For First-Timer Metrc users - After Metrc access has been granted the designated account manager will be able to order your plant and package tags.
- You don’t want to run out of a plant or package tags as you aren't allowed to operate without them as you would have inventory that wouldn’t be recorded in Metrc.
- The Package tags are the large sticker tags. The Plant tags are the long rectangle tags with the 2 holes for plant ties
