A pre-export certificate is required if plants or plant products are to be exported to a country outside the European Union (EU), and exports will take place not from Latvia but from another EU Member State. A pre-export certificate issued in Latvia confirms that plants or plant products have been tested in Latvia in accordance with the requirements of a non-EU beneficiary country. On the basis of a pre-export certificate issued in Latvia, a phytosanitary certificate may be issued in another EU Member State.
