Similar to China, Argentina has serialization and reporting requirements and is not trying to create a trace history. Also like China, they have phased in new requirements based on product type. The similarities end there, though, as Argentina has adopted much more standard requirements.
Serialization: Manufacturers selling product in Argentina must serialize every salable unit in accordance with GS1 standards for both the serial number and bar code format.
Reporting: Argentina mandates that a large set of product events be captured and reported to the government.
TraceLink's solutions support Argentina’s GS1 standard serialization requirements, and we are currently developing country compliance capabilities.
