Business modifications to items contained in the application shall be made in accordance with the following:
(a) Changes to standard operating procedures may be made without providing notification to the Bureau, except at renewal as required under section 5020 of this division. Licensees shall maintain a copy of all current and prior operating procedures as required by section 5037 of this division.
(b) If at the time of licensure, a licensee employed less than 20 employees and later employs 20 or more employees, the licensee shall provide to the Bureau a document attesting that the licensee has entered into a labor peace agreement and will abide by the terms of the agreement, as soon as reasonably practicable once employing 20 or more employees. Once the licensee has entered into the labor peace agreement, the licensee shall provide the Bureau with a copy of the page of the labor peace agreement that contains the signatures of the union representative and the applicant.
(c) Licenses are not transferrable or assignable to another person or owner. In the event of the sale or other transfer of the business or operations covered by the licensee, changes in ownership shall be made in accordance with the following:
(1) If one or more of the owners of a license change, the new owners shall submit the information required under section 5002(c)(20) for each new owner to the Bureau within 14 calendar days of the effective date of the ownership change. The business may continue to operate under the active license while the Bureau reviews the qualifications of the new owner(s) in accordance with the Act and these regulations to determine whether the change would constitute grounds for denial of the license, if at least one existing owner is not transferring his or her ownership interest and will remain as an owner under the new ownership structure. If all owners will be transferring their ownership interest, the business shall not operate under the new ownership structure until a new license application has been submitted to and approved by the Bureau, and all application and license fees for the new application have been paid.
(A) A change in ownership occurs when a new person meets the definition of owner in section 5003 of this division.
(B) A change in ownership does not occur when one or more owners leave the business by transferring their ownership interest to the other existing owner(s).
(2) In cases where one or more owners leave the business by transferring their ownership interest to the other existing owner(s), the owner or owners that are transferring their interest shall provide a signed statement to the Bureau confirming that they have transferred their interest.
(d) When there is a change in persons with financial interest(s) in the commercial cannabis business that do not meet the requirements for a new license application under this section, the licensee shall submit the information required by sections 5002(c)(19) and 5004 of this division to the Bureau within 14 calendar days of the change.
(e) When any of the following changes occur, the licensee shall notify the Bureau within 14 calendar days of the change:
(1) Any change to contact information from the information provided to the Bureau in the original application.
(2) Any change in name if the licensee is an individual, or any change in legal business name if the licensee is a business entity.
(3) Any change in business trade name (DBA) or fictitious business names.

(f) Licensees may request to add an A-designation or M-designation to their license by sending a notification to the Bureau signed by at least one owner as defined in section 5003 of this division. A licensee shall not operate under the requested designation until they have received approval from the Bureau.
(g) Microbusiness licensees may add a commercial cannabis activity to their license or remove a commercial cannabis activity from their license if doing so is consistent with the requirement set forth in section 5500(a) of this division that licensees engage in at least three (3) commercial cannabis activities. Licensees shall request the modification by completing a request to modify the licensed premises pursuant to section 5027 of this division. A licensee shall not engage in a new commercial cannabis activity until they have paid for the modification and received approval from the Bureau.
