Argentina's Track and Trace Regulations Overview

Similar to China, Argentina has serialization and reporting requirements and is not trying to create a trace history. Also like China, they have phased in new requirements based on product type. The similarities end there, though, as Argentina has adopted much more standard requirements.

Serialization and Reporting Highlights


Serialization: Manufacturers selling product in Argentina must serialize every salable unit in accordance with GS1 standards for both the serial number and bar code format.

Reporting: Argentina mandates that a large set of product events be captured and reported to the government.
