Argentina – According to a new resolution published by the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP), Argentina will implement a new tracking system to monitor its imports. The Security Initiative Customs Transit (in Spanish ISTA) says that the new control device will be mandatory “for goods that arrive to the customs territory by water, land or air “.
The agency has put in place an electronic monitoring Precinct Customs (PEMA) system which will enable customs authorities to “determine and meet – in real time – the route diversions, detention, news, contingencies or alarms established in the course of operations in order to take the necessary measures for safeguarding the goods “.
The device allows an immediate response by the Customs operator about the possibility of some injuries, a fact that, according to the AFIP, “provides security to the global supply chain and reduced operating costs.” The measure seeks to comply with the provisions of the World Customs Organization (WCO).
