A medical cannabis manufacturer must operate and maintain in good working order a closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system on all of its premises, which must operate 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and visually record:
all phases of production;
all areas that might contain plant material and medical cannabis, including all safes and vaults;
all points of entry and exit, including sales areas;
the entrance to the video surveillance room; and
any parking lot, which must have appropriate lighting for the normal conditions of the area under surveillance.
capture clear and certain identification of any person entering or exiting a manufacturing facility or distribution facility;
have the ability to produce a clear, color, still photo either live or from a recording;
have an embedded date-and-time stamp on all recordings that must be synchronized and not obscure the picture; and
continue to operate during a power outage.
A video recording must export still images in an industry standard image format, including .jpg, .bmp, and .gif.
Exported video must be archived in a proprietary format that ensures authentication and guarantees that the recorded image has not been altered.
Exported video must also be saved in an industry standard file format that can be played on a standard computer operating system.
All recordings must be erased or destroyed before disposal.
The manufacturer must maintain all security system equipment and recordings in a secure location to prevent theft, loss, destruction, corruption, and alterations.
The manufacturer must ensure that 24-hour recordings from all video cameras are:
available for viewing by the commissioner upon request;
retained for at least 90 calendar days;
maintained free of alteration or corruption; and
retained longer, as needed, if the manufacturer is given actual notice of a pending criminal, civil, or administrative investigation, or other legal proceeding for which the recording may contain relevant information.
