Once your product is in its final form and packaged you will need to submit it for regulatory compliance testing. First, we will move the batch to the batches in testing section of BLAZE. Then we will submit a sample for testing and transfer it to the appropriate lab in your Metrc account. New test samples must come from an existing package and will require a new package tag. Then we will create the test sample in BLAZE. Once the lab has finished the testing and posted the COA you will attach this to the test sample you created in BLAZE and enter the results.
