Argentina Removes Certain Goods from Non-Automatic License List

Posted by Sarah Lilly on 3/8/17 4:31 PM

On March 2, 2017 the Argentinian Secretary of Commerce published Ruling 152-E/2017 listing 11 statistical breakouts that will be eliminated from the list of goods subject to Non-Automatic License requirements. This ruling modifies the previously issued Ruling 5/2015 that covered the submission guidelines of Automatic and Non-Automatic Licenses for goods imported into Argentina.

The breakouts effected by Ruling 152-E/2017 include:

  • Portable automatic data processing machines, not weighing more than 10 kg
  • Non-Portable automatic data processing machines comprising in the same housing at least a central processing unit and an input/output unit, whether or not combined and other types in the form of systems
  • Static converters
  • Monitors using automatic data processing machines
  • Insulated electric conductors fitted with connectors

The breakouts removed from the Non Automatic License list are now subject to an Automatic License (SIMI) before they can be imported into Argentina.

This ruling came into effect on March 3, 2017.
