N.Y. Cannabis Law Section 33
Registration as a designated caregiver facility


To obtain, amend or renew a registration as a designated caregiver facility, the facility shall file a registry application with the office. The registry application or renewal application shall include:


the facility’s full name and address;


operating certificate or license number where appropriate;


name, title, and signature of an authorized facility representative;


a statement that the facility agrees to secure and ensure proper handling of all medical cannabis products;


an acknowledgement that a false statement in the application is punishable under section 210.45 of the penal law; and


any other information that may be required by the board.


Prior to issuing or renewing a designated caregiver facility registration, the office may verify the information submitted by the applicant. The applicant shall provide, at the office’s request, such information and documentation, including any consents or authorizations that may be necessary for the office to verify the information.


The office shall approve, deny or determine incomplete or inaccurate an initial or renewal application within thirty days of receipt of the application. If the application is approved within the thirty-day period, the office shall issue a registration as soon as is reasonably practicable.


An applicant shall have thirty days from the date of a notification of an incomplete or factually inaccurate application to submit the materials required to complete, revise or substantiate information in the application. If the applicant fails to submit the required materials within such thirty-day time period, the application shall be denied by the office.


Registrations issued under this section shall remain valid for two years from the date of issuance.
