On 9 January 2014, the government of Argentina introduced updates in terms of the destination countries relevant for the list of criterion values for exports of tanned or crust hides and skins of bovine (including buffalo) or equine animals, without hair on, whether or not split, but not further prepared (i.e. products falling under HS Code 4104).
 
Specifically, the updates introduced in 2014 did not alter the monetary size of these criterion values for export, since they continued to correspond to a FOB Value ranging from USD 2.35 to USD 2.85 per kg. Nevertheless, what the updates altered i.e. expanded, was the number of the destination countries which these criterion values refer to.
 
Specifically, the new destination countries, which these export criterion values refer to are: Canada, United States of America, Brunei Darussalam, United Arab Emirates, India, Jordan, Malaysia, Singapore, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, China, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, China, Philippines, Pakistan, Viet Nam, Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Denmark, Malta, Norway, United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Japan, Barbados, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Cuba, Mexico, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Australia, Morocco and Bahrain. 
 
The previous destination countries for which these export criterion values referred to were: Republic of Korea, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, China, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Sri Lanka, Viet Nam, Thailand, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Brunei Darussalam, United Arab Emirates, India, Jordan, Malaysia and Singapore.
 
Following the GTA de minimis rule, only the exporting trading partners to Argentina exceeding USD 1 million are listed as affected.

Update
On 27 November 2017, the Argentina Federal Administration of Public Revenue eliminated all reference values on exports (please, see related state acts).
