Approval to coordinate with potential Local Issuer in Argentina

Feb 11, 2021

The Board of the International REC Standard Foundation (I-REC Standard) has approved IRAM (Instituto Argentino de Normalización y Certificación) to coordinate further on their preparations to become the local issuer in Argentina. IRAM is an independent, not-for-profit association that has experience in ISO and other Standardization processes.

Argentinian devices can be registered following the development of the Local Working Instructions (LWI) by IRAM. This internal document explains the issuance process that will guarantee a robust EAC scheme in Argentina.

The I-REC Standard is very pleased with IRAM taking over the role of local issuer to facilitate a robust scheme in Argentina. Local parties have proven to be a valuable partner in providing a reliable scheme due to their expertise in their language and culture, complete working knowledge of the local market, and ability to be involved in relevant legislative developments.
