Oregon Psilocybin Services - Laboratory License

Laboratory License Information

The Oregon Health Authority began accepting applications for psilocybin laboratory licenses on January 2, 2023. 

Laboratory license applicants must first be accredited by the Oregon Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ORELAP). This process begins by registering for a username in the ORELAP Data Input and Edit (ODIE) system. Once registered, the user can create an initial application for accreditation. The laboratory's application will be reviewed and invoiced. Once the invoice has been paid, ORELAP will arrange for an onsite assessment. Once accredited by ORELAP, laboratories can move forward with applying for a psilocybin laboratory license.

Renew a Laboratory License

All psilocybin license types have a one-year term, beginning on the date the license was first issued.

To ensure license continuity, you must submit a complete renewal application at least 60 days before your license expires. See OAR 333-333-4250.

  • Renewal applications that are complete, submitted according to requirements, and submitted at least 60 days before the license expires will be considered timely under OPS rules. Licensees who submit timely applications may continue to operate on an expired license if OPS is unable to process the renewal application prior to the license expiration date. Incomplete renewal applications will not be considered timely unless they are made complete at least 60 days before the license expires. 
  • Renewal applications that are submitted less than 60 days before the license expires will be considered untimely under OPS rules. Licensees who submit untimely applications are prohibited from continuing to operate on an expired license if OPS is unable to process the renewal application prior to the license expiration date. Licensees are prohibited from exercising license privileges on the date their license expires if OPS is unable to process their renewal application before the expiration date and the renewal application is untimely.

We encourage licensees to begin the renewal process as soon as the renewal window in TLC opens. The renewal window in TLC opens 120 days prior to your license expiration date.

For more information about completing the required annual license renewal application process, please read this Letter to OPS Licensees on Renewals and refer to the Laboratory License Renewal Application Guide below:
