Export delays established by the Review Board provide Canadian collecting organizations with an opportunity to acquire culturally significant objects or collections that are facing permanent export.

If a permit applicant cannot reach an agreement with an organization wishing to purchase the cultural property, either party may request that the Review Board determine what would constitute a fair cash offer.

Requests to determine fair cash offers are processed by the Secretariat to the Review Board. Such requests must be received no later than 30 days before the export delay expires.
