Created by a group of institutions, this catalogue comprises of archaeological artefacts commonly found in Latvia, which are most threatened by theft or illegal traffic. Its purpose, as the one of the ICOM's Red Lists, is to help individuals, organisations and law enforcement agencies to identify objects at risk and prevent them from being illegally acquired, illegally sold or exported outside of territory of Latvia*

From 2016 (the year of publishing and dissemination) the use of the Catalogue has helped to decimate the amount of illegally traded Latvian archaeological artefacts on eBay and other specialised trading platforms.
