§ 5020. Renewal of License
(a) To timely renew a license, a completed license renewal form and annual license fee pursuant
to section 5014 of this division shall be received by the Bureau from the licensee no earlier than
60 calendar days before the expiration of the license and no later than 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on
the last business day before the expiration of the license if the renewal form is submitted to the
Bureau at its office(s), or no later than 11:59 p.m. on the last business day before the expiration
of the license if the renewal form is submitted to the Bureau through its electronic licensing
system. Failure to receive a notice for license renewal does not relieve a licensee of the
obligation to renew all licenses as required.

transfer, transport, manufacture, test, or distribute any commercial cannabis goods until the
license is renewed.

late renewal form will be subject to a late fee equal to 50 percent of the applicable licensing fee
required by subsection (a).
(d) The license renewal form shall contain the following:
(1) The name of the licensee. For licensees who are individuals, the applicant shall provide both
the first and last name of the individual. For licensees who are business entities, the licensee shall
provide the legal business name of the applicant.
