The Arizona Department of Health Services has a goal to begin accepting dispensary registration certificate applications as soon as April 2012. For this initial issuance of dispensary registration certificates, the Department plans to allocate certificates on the basis of Community Health Analysis Areas (CHAAs). CHAAs were developed in 2005 as relatively small, community-based geographic units with a large enough population base to do statistical analysis.
The Department plans to award dispensary registration certificates as described in R9-17-302. If only one complete and compliant application is received for a dispensary in a CHAA, that applicant will be awarded a certificate. If more than one complete and compliant application is received for a dispensary for a particular CHAA, the Department will randomly award the certificate.
A dispensary with a registration certificate must obtain from the Department an approval to operate before beginning operations as a dispensary. The process for applying for approval to operate is described in R9-17-304.
