An applicant whose application for an export permit was refused by a permit officer may, within thirty (30) days after the date on which the notice of refusal was sent, request a review by CCPERB. Following its review of the request, CCPERB may establish export delays of two to six months, during which an object determined to be of outstanding significance and national importance will not be permitted to be exported from Canada. Export delays provide designated organizations with an opportunity to acquire these culturally significant objects that might otherwise be permanently lost to Canada.


The following table identifies all recent and ongoing requests for review of an application for an export permit and any resulting Review Board decisions:
