Export stamps should only be applied to product containers. They should not be applied to export certificates or accompanying documentation such as letterhead certificates. The three exceptions to this rule are Russia, Switzerland and the European Union. These countries require that export documents carry the export stamp.
Under no circumstances should embossed seals be applied to health certificates or accompanying documentation. If requested to apply the export stamp or embossed seal to export documents for countries other than those previously identified, the country requirements should be carefully reviewed to determine if a change in procedure has occurred.
