New York ARTCC did not coordinate the estimates of RCH21 with the Gander OAC planner. At 50W Gander received a progress report on RCH21and noticed the conflict with USA12. New York was advised and RCH21 was rerouted. The separation between the 2 aircraft was 7 minutes longitudinal and approximately 25-30 miles lateral. The required separation was 1,000 feet vertical or 60 miles lateral with 15 minutes longitudinal. New York ARTCC has been advised and will be investigating.
