Argentina Makes Further Changes to Import Licencing Requirements

On 21 December 2015 the Comprehensive Import Monitoring System (Sistema Integral de Monitoreo de Importaciones (SIMI)) replaced the DJAI (Declaración Jurada Anticipada de Importación, or sworn advance import declaration) system for managing and processing import licences in Argentina. The Argentinean government is issuing automatic licences through SIMI for imports for consumption within Argentina of products under virtually all tariff lines.

Non-automatic import licences are required for a range of goods due to their sensitive nature. These licences are typically issued within ten days unless the application is incomplete, in which case authorities have up to 30 days to complete their review and make a decision. The government recently increased from 90 days to 180 days the period of validity of non-automatic licences and amended the list of items subject to non-automatic licencing by:

  • excluding goods classified under NCM 6104.41.00, 6104.42.00, 6104.43.00, 6104.44.00, 6104.49.00, 6104.52.00, 6104.53.00, 6104.62.00, 6104.63.00, 6104.69.00, 6106.10.00, 6106.20.00, 6106.90.00, 6117.10.00, 6205.90.90, 6206.10.00, 6206.90.00, 6209.20.00, 6209.30.00, 6209.90.90, 6214.10.00, 6214.20.00, 6214.30.00, 6214.40.00, 6214.90.10, 7408.11.00, 8414.51.10, 8414.59.90, 8415.10.11, 8415.81.90, 8467.29.93, 8471.30.11, 8477.10.11, 8517.62.77, 8711.40.00, 8711.50.00, 9018.90.31, 9018.90.94, 9022.90.12 and 9025.11.10;
