Date: March 9, 1990
1.1 The Export Control List (ECL) has been amended to include a new Item No. 5202. Item 5202 covers the export of unprocessed roe herring as follows:
"5202. (1) In this Item,
1.2 Unprocessed roe herring that are caught in:
2.1 Exporters wishing to export unprocessed roe herring as defined in ECL Item 5202 must apply for and receive an export permit issued by the Export Controls Division of the Department of External Affairs and International Trade. Requests for a permit are made on form EXT 1042 (88/08) "Application for Permit to Export Goods".
3.1 For all exports to the United States of unprocessed roe herring as defined in Item 5202 of the ECL, export permit applications must be supported by a certification provided by the U.S. consignee. This certification must include the following statement:
"I/We certify that unprocessed roe herring imported from (name of exporter) will:
1. not be re-exported from the United States unless further processed (i.e. as a minimum, the roe must be extracted from the herring); or
2. actually be consumed in the United States."
(name of consignee)
(signature of officer of importing company)
3.2 Failure to included the certification with the export permit application will result in delays in issuing the permit and perhaps in denial of an export permit.
4.1 Under the "Export and Import Permits and Certificates Fees Order 1989", a charge of $15.00 is levied for each export permit requested. A cheque or bank money order (no cash), made payable to the Receive General of Canada, must be submitted with the application.
4.2 Once the export permit application is completed, it must be submitted together with the certification required in paragraph 3 above and the fee of $15.00 as noted in paragraph 5 above, to:
The Department of External Affairs and International Trade
Export Controls Division (EPMT)
P.O. Box 481
Postal Station A
5.1 Exporters who wish to submit export permit applications by facsimile may do so. However, the facsimile application must included the consignee's certification (if applicable). The exporter must immediately Courier the original application to the address noted in paragraph 6 above together with the original consignee certification (if applicable) and the cheque or money order required in paragraph 5 above.
6.1 Once the export permit application is processed, two copies of the valid permit will be returned to the exporter or applicant, which ever the case may be. The permit will be marked "Single Shipment Only" which mens that once the permit is used, even if the quantities and values noted on the permit have not been reached, the permit cannot be used again. An exporter would therefore be required to re-submit a new export permit application for the balance of the shipment or additional shipments.
6.2 As indicated, permits will be issued for single shipments only Multi-shipment, multi-consignee permits will not be issued.
