COVID-19 update: New regulations in Argentina
On April 10, 2021 the Official cabinet Of Argentina had released a set of requirements that required commercial drivers undergo various tests (PCR, antigen, and others), following Chile (added to what is already in force in Uruguay).
At this point there are no further requirements. This PCR testing is the only COVID-19 specific requirement imposed on foreign drivers, with each one costing approximately $100 and taking approximately 24hrs.
FADEEAC has expressed, that all these increased risks and costs have a direct negative impact to the supply chains and along with the other associations called out to the government to suspend the testing measures immediately (and indefinitely) and to harmonize and coordinate testing standards and procedures in all countries in the region.
The Decree of Necessity and Urgency, established on 19 March by the National Executive, has determined preventive and compulsory social isolation for the general population, but has excluded the motor transport of cargo as it is considered essential for the normal functioning of society.
It therefore ensures the flow of the transport of goods, oil, fuels and LPG, any activities related to agriculture, fishery and food production and distribution. This essential service also includes the home delivery of food, medicines, cleaning and hygiene products and other necessities, as well as the collection, transport and treatment of urban, hazardous and pathogenic solid waste.
FADEEAC recommends reducing staff to a minimum, leaving in place a dedicated team to enable the smooth operation of each company until 31 March. These might include administrative workers or mechanics, among others. According to FADEEAC, it is also important to remember that based on previous experience, complications may arise in some parts of the country with the application of these rules, and that in this instance some jurisdictions may apply exceptional measures and restrict freight transport operations.
That is why the FADEEAC COVID-19 Crisis Committee is available to provide legal support and assistance to resolve any doubts and discuss potential conflicts detected by carriers along the country's routes.To request information and for enquiries or complaints about irregular situations, contact the FADEEAC Crisis Committee COVID-19 via Whatsapp message only, +549 11 37649391, 7 days per week, from 08:00 to 22:00.
