Guidance document for Export of Substances on the Export Control List Regulations

3. Prior notice of export

Prior notice of export is required for all exports of substances, or products containing one or more of the substances, listed on the Export Control List. This is a requirement set out in subsection 101(1) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 and the Regulations describe the manner in which to notify. Section 5 requires that prior notice of export be provided to the Minister 30 days before the proposed export.

The information to be provided for prior notice of export is detailed in Schedule 1 of the Regulations. Templates are available for exporters to provide this prior notice.  Exporters are not obligated to use these templates. However, to facilitate review Environment Canada encourages their use.
