Applicants will need to pay the $6000 application fee for each separate prequalification submitted to BMMR for review. Applicants will not need to pay the $6000 application fee for each separate step 2 submitted. However, applicants will need to pay the regulatory assessment for each step two, before the license can be issued.
Please see the following illustrative examples below for further clarity:
Example 1—One entity seeking multiple licenses (e.g., a grower and processor license)
Entity needs to complete one prequalification, and pay the $6000 application fee. Entity needs to complete a grower step 2 and a processor step 2. When entity receives notification, entity will need to pay a regulatory assessment for the grower license AND a regulatory assessment for the processor license.
Example 2—Separate entities seeking to co-locate (e.g., a prospective grower, processor, and provisioning center)
Entity A, Entity B, and Entity C plan to co-locate as a grower, processor and provisioning center respectively. Each entity will need to pay an application fee of $6000 and, after BMMR notification, will need to pay a regulatory assessment. So, Entity A will need to pay $6000 with its prequalification; Entity B will need to pay $6000 with its separate prequalification; and Entity C will need to pay $6000 with its separate prequalification. A regulatory assessment will also need to be paid for each the grower, processor, and provisioning center license
