Argentina does not have a framework environmental law setting general rules for hazardous substances and products, but it has issued regulations on PCBs in products and implemented an import ban on certain batteries that exceed threshold levels for mercury, cadmium and lead.  Recent international and regional attention on restricting the use of substances in products may spur additional regulations, including possibly a RoHS-type regulation for electronic products, which is currently under consideration in the national Congress.  Argentina has also ratified the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and is focusing efforts on improving capacity to implement the Convention’s controls on listed substances.
