Flow Chart of Application to Return a Shipment Exported from Canada

The Applicant requests the return of the product by sending annexes B, B1, B2, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency certificate 1454. The appropriate annexes (Annex B, B1, B2) and Canadian Food Inspection Agency certificate 1454 are sent to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Area Office of destination for product inspection and then to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Headquarters.

The approved Annex B1 is sent from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Headquarters to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Area Office of destination, which then sends it to the applicant and the Import Service Center. The applicant then sends the approved Annex B1 to the custom broker. There is a bilateral communication between the Import Service Center and the Custom broker.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency Area Office of destination keeps the inspector in charge of the producing establishment (if different than the establishment of inspection) informed about the applicants' requests and annexes sent to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Headquarters and also lets the inspector in charge know about any approved Annexes B1 going back from Canadian Food Inspection Agency Headquarters to an applicant.

The Import Service Center of the port of landing communicates all information to the inspector in charge of the inspection establishment, the inspector of the port of landing (if applicable) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Area Office of destination.
