            Processing of Form B2

            adjustment requests

             

            1. The purpose of this customs notice is to advise that

            effective April 1, 2010, the processing of B2 adjustment

            requests, with certain exceptions, will be centralized at two

            locations for all of Canada. As of that time, the Quebec and

            Greater Toronto Area (GTA) regions will be responsible for

            processing all B2 adjustment requests from across Canada,

            with the following exceptions:

            (a)

            B2 requests that result from a compliance

            verification (multi-program or single program) from

            another region. These claims should be directed to the

            Senior Officer Trade

            Compliance (SOTC) who

            conducted the verification;

            (b)

            Blanket B2 claims;

            (c)

            Section 60 B2 claims for recourse.

            2. B2s currently being submitted to and processed in the

            Atlantic and Northern Ontario regions will be processed in

            the Quebec region and should be submitted directly to the

            following address:

            CBSA

            Trade Services Division

            c/o B2 Processing

            400 Youville Square, 5th floor

            Montréal, QC H2Y 2C2

            3. B2s currently being submitted to and processed in the

            Pacific region will be processed in the GTA region and

            should be submitted directly to the following address:

            CBSA

            CV & S, Client Services

            c/o B2 Processing

            55 Bay St. North, 6th floor

            Hamilton, ON L8R 3P7

             

             

            4. Prairie region B2s will continue to be processed in the

            GTA region and should be submitted directly to the GTA

            region at the following address:

            CBSA

            CV & S, Client Services

            c/o B2 Processing

            55 Town Centre Court, Suite 718

            Scarborough, ON M1P 4X4

            5. At implementation, you may continue to send your B2

            adjustment requests to their

            local CBSA office; however, in

            order to expedite the process and reduce the turn around

            time, it is preferable to have them forwarded directly to the

            appropriate region for processing. For a detailed breakdown

            and location of regional o

            ffices, including the office

            number, please refer to the CBSA Web site located at

            www.cbsa.gc.ca

            .

            6. For your information, and for tracking purposes, all

            processed B2s will be returned to the originating CBSA

            office for filing. We would recommend submitting all B2s

            with a duplicate copy which will be date stamped upon

            receipt in either GTA or Queb

            ec region and returned to the

            broker/importer for their tracking purposes.

            7. Please note that as stated in D11-6-6 paragraph 58,

            “A disclosure must also be initiated by the client and must

            be considered voluntary, that is, it was made without the

            knowledge of an audit, verification, investigation, or other

            enforcement action that has been initiated by the CBSA or a

            related administration such as other federal and provincial

            departments.” Therefore, once a company has received

            notification of an impending verification, the verification

            file number must appear in

            the “Justification for Request”

            field to indicate the B2 is not eligible for the fast-track

            process.
