Inspection Process and Information
When a licensing technician’s review of your modification of premises application is complete, the licensing technician will provide you with an inspection notice to complete the required inspections. We strongly recommend that you engage professionals to ensure you’re in compliance with building, zoning, public health and fire prevention requirements. A non-comprehensive guide(PDF, 860KB) to common marijuana business license inspection requirements can be found here.
Inspecting agencies will digitally pass or fail your inspections. All inspecting agencies must pass your inspections before the Department can close your modification of premises records.
As of September 12, 2019, Marijuana License Modification of Premises Applications will only require a Zoning and Neighborhood Inspection for one of the following reasons:
You have applied for a modification of premises for a marijuana center or store in an I-B zone use district.
You have applied for a modification of premises for a cultivation in a zone use district other than an I-A, I-B, OS-B, I-O, I-1, I-2, OS-1, or OS-2 zone use district.
You indicated on your Marijuana License Modification of Premises Application that your modification will result in the addition of an extraction room or an expansion of extraction space.
You have applied for a modification of premises that will result in an address change (for example, through the expansion or removal of units).
With the exception of the Zoning and Neighborhood Inspection (which is only required for the reasons outlined above), the following inspections are required for all modification of premises applications:
Community Planning & Development: Zoning and Neighborhood Inspections
Community Planning & Development: Building Inspections Division
Public Health & Environment: Public Health Inspections Division; inspection required for only stores, manufacturing, testing, transporter, and off-premises storage facilities
Public Health & Environment: Environmental Quality; inspection required for only cultivation and manufacturing facilities
