Person Responsible for Dispensary (PRD)

How to change a PRD

What is a PRD?

A PRD is a "Person Responsible for a Dispensary." This means any individual listed as a PRD on the application who is directly involved in managing the day-to-day operations of a dispensary and meets the qualifications in OAR 333-008-1075 through 333-008-1078.

More than one PRD can be listed, however there can only be one Primary PRD (see below).

What is a Primary PRD?

A Primary PRD is an individual who:

  • is designated as the primary point of contact for dispensary;
  • is authorized to receive any and all communications and legal notices from the Oregon Health Authority;
  • meets the qualifications in OAR 333-008-1075 through 333-008–1078; and
  • is involved in the day-to-day operations of the dispensary.

Only one person may act as a Primary PRD, and a dispensary must have a registered Primary PRD in order to operate.
