71.27. A certified body must send the Minister the file respecting the adoption of a child domiciled outside Québec
(1) upon ceasing its activities or if its certification is revoked or not renewed; or
(2) within two years after the arrival of the child in Québec or withdrawal from the adoption process.
Where the certified body must, more than two years after the arrival of the child, provide the authorities of the child’s State of origin with a report on the child’s post-adoption situation, it must also, once the record has been given to the Minister, send the Minister without delay all copies of any report it has in its possession.
The Minister may, in the situations and on the conditions the Minister determines, authorize a body to consult a file it has sent to the Minister.
