It used to be Ottawa but the US government doesn't trust the canadiand with such an important task now.

Quite why they should have a say in issuing British passports I don't know.

Tbh I can't quite remember the exact details but it did have something to do with the Anericans not being assured of the security of the process used in Canada and seeing as the passports might be used to cross the US border they felt they had the right to insist that they were processed in the US

This is completely wrong.

The Canadians have had no involvement with issuing British passports. The Foreign Office decided to centralise all British passport issuance for the Americas in the British Embassy in Washington DC.

Although realistically, it's unlikely the passport service will improve unless the Home Office take it over and print everything in the UK. This is what other countries have done - embassies should normally not issue anything other than emergency travel documents.

Security standards for passports in general are higher. In the past, standards at overseas embassies of many countries were relatively lax (handwritten passports instead of machine readable).

As a result many countries have consolidated passport issuing into larger offices. The only overseas Australian missions that issue full passports are London and Washington DC, for example. The USA has brought all passport issues for overseas Americans into one office in New Hampshire.

I do remember a friend of mine having issues travelling with his brittish passport that was issued by the consulate in Geneva

It wasn't machine readable as I recall , just had a blank space where the code should have been

Non-machine readable = you need a U.S. tourist visa. Same goes for children on parent's passports.
