Argentina Streamlines Import Process for Motor Vehicles, Bans Sale of Certain Chemicals
Argentina has implemented new digital import certificate procedures for motor vehicles, trailers, semi-trailers, engine blocks, and self-propelled agricultural, road and industrial machinery that are expected to further facilitate the import process for these products. The digital certificates may be requested through the remote processing module (TAD) and will be issued electronically by the relevant body within the National Automotive Property Registries and Collateral Loans Directorate.
Separately, Argentina has banned the sale, importation and use in grains of the active principles Dichlorvos (DDVP) and Trichlorfon, as well as any formulated products containing those active principles. Slated to enter into force on 4 November, the ban covers grain production as well as post-harvest, transportation, manipulation and storage activities.
