Resolution no. 13/2012 of the Argentinean mining ministry of May 14, 2012 (entry into effect on the 28th of May), introduced a number of measures for mining corporations with operations in Argentina. Those companies are now obliged to set up an import substitution department and to 'respect the current norms of the Republic of Argentina in the design and completion of engineering projects', i.e. to prioritise local purchases and services. If this is not possible, an approval must be obtained from the mining ministry at least 120 days prior to the import. The affected trading partners for this measure have been established based on the list of mining companies active in Argentina available at http://www.argentinamining.com/en/empresas-mineras-en-argentina/.
