Argentina amends content declaration for textiles
Feb '17
The Argentinean government has amended the Product Composition Sworn Declaration (DJCP) requirements for domestically-produced and imported textiles, apparel, and footwear. DJCPs will be generated through the Integrated Foreign Trade System (SISCO) using a unique numeric or alphanumeric product identification code that will be valid for 180 days.

As per Resolution 70/2017, the validity of product identification code has been increased to 180 days from the previous 120 days. The effective date of the new requirements announced in December 2016 has been postponed to May 5, 2017 from the earlier date of February 4. Likewise, the requirement for DJCPs to be accompanied by a laboratory test report supporting the fibre/constituent material content declaration of the product has been delayed from June 4, 2017, to May 5, 2018.

The resolution, 404-E/2016, announced by the Bureau of Trade of Argentina in December 2016 required that DJCPs be presented to the Bureau of Trade of the ministry of production by manufacturers and importers of textile and footwear. The declaration must contain the percentage composition of the fibres or of the constituent materials in the product. The declaration will include supporting evidence regarding the validity of the information stated on the product label.

Moreover, it required that DJCPs be filed electronically on the SISCO, and an acceptance certificate and code would be issued thereafter. Both the certificate and the code would be valid for a period of 120 days during which the product can enter the Argentinean market. This period has now been extended to 180 days.

For the purpose of this resolution, any product would be considered a textile product, if it has at least 80 per cent of its mass consisting of fibres or textile filaments. It defines textile as any item in its raw, semi-processed, semi-manufactured, manufactured, semi-finished, or ready-made state, consisting exclusively of fibres or textile filaments.

The correctness of the declaration made by manufacturers, importers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers regarding fibre or material composition can be assessed by the Enforcement Authority, with the help of National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI).

For outstanding stocks of textiles and footwear without a corresponding DJCP, a grace period of 360 days from the date of enforcement of the resolution is provided to sell such stocks. (RKS)
