The Motor Vehicle industry of Argentina started earlier and is more developed in Latin America. Argentina and Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela jointly established the South American Common Market （Mercado Común del Sur - Mercado Comum do Sul - MERCOSUR） and implemented a zero-tariff preferential policy for automobile exports. Argentina has signed bilateral trade agreements with Uruguay and Mexico, and with Mexico began full implementation of free trade in 2006.
The Ministry of Productive Development of Argentina is the responsible authority to issue Model Configuration License (LCM) for new vehicles intended to drive on public roads to manufactures and importers to guarantee the compliance with safety regulations. The other important governmental departments for motor vehicle homologation includes Argentine Institute for Standardization and Certification (IRAM), Argentina Accreditation Organization (OAA) and National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI).
The complete vehicle certification process in Argentina includes importer and Manufacturer Registration, vehicle Safety Certification, vehicle Emission and Noise Certification. After completion, the Ministry of Industry will review the completeness and accuracy of all materials and issue certificates. The Ministry of Industry, as a regulatory body, will also conduct random inspections of listed vehicles after the vehicle has been certified.
In addition, CHAS certification is required for more than 20 aftermarket parts and components.
ATIC experts conduct systematic research on Argentine regulations and certification systems, and work closely with Argentine above mentioned authorities to provide one-stop compliance and homologation services for vehicle and component manufacturers.
