CCRS Access Denied

Your LCB Primary email address, SAW account email address, and/or the email address you enter for CCRS are the cause. If there is a discrepancy between the addresses, you will get this error. You may also get this error if, for security purposes, you've made a secondary SAW account.


To fix this issue you must inform the LCB via email.

Please have an entity member (PERSON_NAME) email with your License # (#LICENSE_NUMBER), a contact # (PHONE_NUMBER), current email (OLD_EMAIL) and the new email (NEW_EMAIL) address.

Subject: CCRS Email Update for #LICENSE_NUMBER

I'm getting an access denied error message when I sign in to CCRS.
Please update my CCRS email address from OLD_EMAIL to NEW_EMAIL.

Very truly yours,
