Bs. As., 11/11/83

VISTO that the Argentine Republic participated in the X Assembly of the International Maritime Signature Association (AISM-IALA) held in Tokyo (Japanese Empire) in 1980, where the new Maritime Boyado System was approved, and


That the system was subsequently approved by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) at the 44th Session of the Maritime Safety Committee.

That on 15 April 1982 the country signed the agreement in the city of Paris (French Republic) to establish the new system throughout its territory, adhering to the B region comprising the entire American continent.

That for the establishment of the same in the river zone and especially in the Ríos de la Plata and Uruguay, contact was taken with the National Directorate of Port Construction and Sailing Routes (DNCP and VN), with the Oceanographic, Hydrographic and Meteorological Service of the Navy of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay (SOHMA), with the administering Commission of the Rio de la Plata (CARP) and agreed with the Administration Commission of the Uruguay River.

That it is necessary to replace the current "Regulation General de Balizamiento Marítimo y Fluvial de la República Argentina" with the new Regulations governing the system to which the Argentine Republic has acceded.
