Table 1 notes

Table 1 note 1

Justification: In 2018-19, the delay in the issuance of registration certifications was due to:

  • The introduction of a new internal process and the lack of available trained staff thereby creating a bottleneck at the front end of the company registration process
  • Vacancy of the manager position resulted in a significant backlog revealed at the end of fiscal 2018-19 exceeding 700 files in February 2019. At the beginning of fiscal year 2019-20, the bulk of the backlog was still in the in-take unit of the Registrations Division with 140+ files waiting to be assigned for processing

Table 1 note 2

Throughout 2019 to 2020, the following actions were taken in an effort to stabilize the division while allowing for more time to conduct a more fulsome security assessment of applications:

  • The intake unit (validations) was overstaffed to provide maximum stability and contingency in periods of high turnover
  • The Controlled Goods Directorate Registrations and Exemptions Division was split into two separate entities
  • The registrations manager position was filled indeterminately in February 2020. In addition, 3 indeterminate registration analysts, as well as 5 registration officers were hired throughout 2019 to 2020

Our current electronic file management process, risk prioritization and individualized employee training is resulting in steady improvements in our application processing. If the trend continues, we expect to reach our desired service standard before the end of the fiscal year.
