Argentina has issued several design for environment requirements that impact electronic products and batteries, including an import ban on certain batteries that fail to meet content thresholds for mercury, cadmium and lead, and energy efficiency labeling initiatives that have to date focused mainly on white goods and lighting products. The Argentine Congress is considering other bills that would mandate further energy efficiency, design for recycling and materials restrictions measures for a wider range of electronic products. Future design for environment initiatives may also emerge through Argentina's robust National Clean Production initiative, which is promoting government procurement practices and design considerations. Another driver of future regulations may be a series of policies and programs emerging out of MERCOSUR, the southern cone trade agreement, which address design for environment.
