Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On 26 September 2018, the Ministry of Production and Labour of Argentina has announced the modification of the regime regarding temporary imports for export production. According to the government, the changes introduced will result in faster procedures. Concretely it is expected that procedures will go from requiring three months to be completed to be able to be finished in 15 days.

The temporary imports for export production regime allow for the duty-free importation of certain goods and raw materials used in transformation processes, to later export the resulting manufactured good.
