(a) A cannabis or cannabis product batch that has been additionally processed after failed testing must be retested and successfully pass all the analyses required under this chapter.
(b) The licensed distributor or licensed microbusiness authorized to engage in distribution shall arrange for remediation of a failed cannabis or cannabis product batch. If the batch cannot be remediated, the batch shall be destroyed by the licensed distributor or licensed microbusiness authorized to engage in distribution.

(e) Within one business day of completing the required analyses of a representative sample obtained from a remediated cannabis or cannabis product batch, the laboratory shall upload the COA information into the track and trace system, or if the licensee does not yet have access to the track and trace system, it shall be emailed to the Department.
(f) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted to prevent a cannabis or cannabis product batch from being retested when the COA is 12 or more months old.
