Veterinary, plant health, safety and security control

Food Veterinary Service border inspectors works on the borders of Latvia – roads, ports, railroads, post offices, airport and customs warehouses who, performing the control of live animals, goods and products, veterinarian, food safety, non-food goods safety and plant health, do not allow import of production harmful to the health and lives of customers, as well as the environment and different ailments in the state, as well as in the European Union from states that are not European Member states.

Performing cargo control, firstly, border inspectors check accompanying documents, then check whether the written in documents conform to the real cargo content. If necessary, border inspectors take samples and send them for laboratory investigation.

If border inspectors establish that the cargo does not conform to demands provided by European Union and Latvia, it is sent back to the country, from which it was imported, or is eliminated or used for other goals/targets/aims. If border inspectors establish serious trespasses, they will check the next cargo delivered by this enterprise more intense.

Border Control Department of Food and Veterinarian Service (FVS) plans, organizes and coordinates Cargo State Supervision on the Border of Latvia.
