4. In order to protect the national cultural values and to prevent the exportation of the cultural objects (also dispatch by post) which in the databases available to the State Inspection for Heritage Protection (hereinafter - the Inspection) are identifiable as the objects which are being searched for and are missing, the Inspection shall take a decision to export the cultural objects by issuing a permit of a specific sample (hereinafter - the permit).

5. The permit is required for the exportation of cultural monuments and the cultural objects which comply with the categories of the cultural objects referred to in Annex 1 to this Regulation.

6. The requirement referred to in Paragraph 5 of this Regulation shall not be applicable in the following cases:

II. Procedures for Issuing the Permit

7. In order to receive the permit, a natural or legal person or an authorised person thereof (hereinafter - the submitter) shall fill in an application in the Inspection for the purpose of obtaining the permit for the exportation of the cultural object (hereinafter - the application) (Annex 2) and shall present the cultural object intended for the exportation. If the submitter is an authorised person, he or she shall present a power of attorney in the Inspection. The data indicated in the abovementioned application shall be included by the Inspection in the first copy of the permit - submission (Annex 3).

8. If it is planned to export a collection of the cultural objects, the submitter together with the application shall submit to the Inspection a description of the collection drawn up in compliance with Paragraph 3 of this Regulation by appending thereto colour photographs of all cultural objects included in the collection (not older than one year, each object is clearly visible and identifiable). The number of photographs shall be determined in compliance with the number of permit copies (Paragraphs 20 and 21 of this Regulation). The minimum size of the photograph shall be 8 x 12 cm, whereas the maximum size - 10 x 15 cm.

9. If it is planned to export a large-size cultural object, the Inspection has the right to conduct a survey of the cultural object at the location thereof.

10. A separate permit shall be issued for the exportation of each cultural object (this requirement is not applicable to the cultural objects which are to be exported at the same time and the origin of which the Inspection has recognised as complying with the characteristics of the collection of the cultural objects (Paragraph 3 of this Regulation)). Within 15 days after the research of the presented cultural object (except for the cases referred to in Paragraphs 13 and 14 of this Regulation), the Inspection shall take a decision to issue the permit for the exportation of the cultural object or to refuse to issue the permit for the exportation of the cultural object.

11. The Inspection shall take a decision to prohibit to issue the permit for the exportation of the cultural object if it is established that:

11.2. the cultural object is identifiable in the databases available to the Inspection as an object which is being searched for or missing.

12. The Inspection shall refuse to issue the permit for complete exportation of the cultural object and shall issue the permit for temporary exportation of the cultural object if it is established that as the result of an additional expert-examination such object has been recognised as a newly-discovered cultural monument and is subject to inclusion in the list of State protected cultural monuments. The term for re-importation of the newly-discovered cultural monument into Latvia cannot exceed a period of six months.

13. If it is necessary to perform an expert-examination of the presented cultural object or to clarify the rights of ownership thereof, the Inspection has the right to seize the cultural object in the Inspection longer than for a period of 15 days, but not longer than until the day on which the decision is taken. For the purpose of clarifying the rights of ownership, the submitter shall present the title deed. If the Inspection by using the databases available to it establishes that the presented object is being searched for or is missing, the Inspection shall notify the State Police thereon.

14. The Inspection has the right to request that other competent institutions (taking into account the category of the submitted cultural object) or sector specialists to provide an opinion for additional evaluation of the cultural object subject to the exportation. The opinion shall have recommendatory nature if the opinion contains a note stating that the exportation of the relevant object and issuing of the permit are determined by another legislative measure. All expenses incurred to the relevant institution and related to the preparation of an opinion shall be covered by the submitter.

15. If an additional expert-examination is required, the Inspection may convene an expert council. The composition of the expert council and the by-laws shall be approved by the head of the Inspection.

16. If it is necessary to export the cultural object for the purpose of displaying it in a foreign state or due to any other reason (for example, restoration, expert-examination, training programme), the Inspection shall take a decision to temporary export the cultural object. Within the meaning of this Regulation, temporary exportation of the cultural object is the exportation thereof for a certain period of time and importation into Latvia in full extent and in a well-preserved condition at a time laid down by the Inspection. Re-importation term must not exceed a period of three years.

17. If musical instruments comply with categories A8 and B9 referred to in Annex 1 to this Regulation, temporary exportation thereof for professional needs of the orchestra and performers shall be attested by documentation on the origin of instruments drawn up by the administration or performer of the relevant establishment, presented in a customs authority without exportation documents issued by the Inspection (the permit or statement).

18. The period of validity of the permit shall be one year from the issuing date thereof. If the period of validity has expired, but it has not been used, the Inspection may issue the permit repeatedly.

19. The permit shall be issued after the submitter has paid the State duty for issuing the permit for the exportation of the cultural objects or temporary exportation thereof from Latvia.

20. The Inspection shall issue two copies of the permit for the exportation of the cultural object from Latvia within the area of the European Union (Annex 3):

20.1. the first copy of the permit - submission to the Inspection on the exportation of the cultural object - shall be kept by the Inspection;

20.2. the other copy of the permit shall be kept by the submitter and shall present upon request of responsible officials.

21. The Inspection shall issue three copies of the permit for the exportation of the cultural object from Latvia outside the area of the European Union (Annex 3):

21.1. the first copy of the permit - submission to the Inspection on the exportation of the cultural object - shall be kept by the Inspection;

21.2. the second copy of the permit shall be kept by the submitter and shall present to the customs authority. The customs authority shall make the relevant indications therein;

21.3. the third copy of the permit shall be handed to the submitter for the purpose of submitting it to the customs authority. The customs authority shall make the relevant indications therein and shall send it to the Inspection within 15 days.

22. The exportation of the cultural objects from Latvia outside the area of the European Union includes the arrangement of customs formalities in the customs authority. Taking into account the abovementioned, the cultural objects may be exported only through the external border crossing sites with customs control points. The customs authority, upon reviewing all permit copies, shall make sure that the information specified in the customs declaration complies with the information indicated in the permit.

23. The submitter is entitled to contest the decision taken by the Inspection to prohibit the exportation of the presented cultural objects in the Ministry of Culture.

24. In order to facilitate the exportation of such cultural object which is not a cultural monument and does not comply with the categories referred to in Annex 1 to this Regulation, the Inspection, upon wish of the submitter, may issue the relevant statement for the purpose of presenting it in the customs authority. The period of validity of the statement shall be one year from the issuing date thereof.

III. Importation of the Cultural Objects into Latvia

25. When importing the cultural object for which temporary importation is intended into Latvia from countries other than the European Union Member States, the owner (possessor) thereof is obliged to declare the object in the customs authority of Latvia. If the cultural object for which temporary importation is intended into Latvia is not presented in the customs authority, it shall be regarded that the person has purchased the relevant cultural object in Latvia and the procedures for the exportation of the cultural objects laid down in this Regulation shall be applied to the exportation thereof.

26. If the person, when importing the cultural object from the European Union into Latvia for the exportation of which form Latvia the permit is required in compliance with this Regulation, can present the documents attesting the rights of ownership or purchase outside Latvia (for example, the purchase contract of the cultural object, purchase invoice, the permit for the exportation of the cultural object from another European Union Member State), this Regulation shall not be applicable to the exportation of the relevant cultural object.

27. The owner (possessor) of the cultural object for which temporary exportation is intended shall notify the Inspection in written form within 15 days after importation thereof into Latvia.

28. The cultural monument subject to temporary exportation shall be registered by the owner (possessor) thereof in the Inspection within 15 days after importation thereof into Latvia by confirming in written form that the imported cultural monument is the same cultural monument to which temporary exportation is applied. In the event of any doubt, the Inspection has the right to request the owner (possessor) of the cultural monument to present the re-imported cultural monument.
