Vat exemptions - funeral cases

Hello, I see the burial/cremation is exempt from vat in the Netherlands. Is there no vat on exporting funeral cases also? I do not see anything related in your knowledge base. I am looking at having a Netherlands company build funeral cases and export them to another country that is not in the eu or covered by any eu vat requirements.
Thank you for your assistance.
The VAT exemption for burial/cremation is only applicable for services provided directly related to a burial/cremation. The sale of individual funeral cases is not exempted from VAT.
If the funeral case is exported to a business client outside the Netherlands/EU, the export is taxed at a rate of 0%. VAT will be paid on the import of the case to the customs in the country where it is exported to.
