Argentina is a Party to the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal (the "Basel Convention"), which prohibits import and export of hazardous wastes and "other wastes" (i.e., household wastes) between Parties and non-Parties. The Argentine Constitution further bans all imports of hazardous wastes. Imports and exports of non-hazardous wastes are allowable only with prior authorization from the Secretariat of the Environment and Sustainable Development ("SAyDS"). Finally, although beyond the scope of this report, many Argentine provinces have their own waste laws, most of which prohibit entry of hazardous wastes into their territories or otherwise restrict interprovincial wastes movements.
