Bs. As., 20/8/92
VISTO Decree No. 1001 of 21 May 1982 and its amendment No. 405 of 17 March 1987 and Decree No. 2284 of 31 October 1991 and
That the transport of goods in containers is a mechanism of great importance in the development of internal and external trade operations, so the regulation of their use must be sufficiently agile to facilitate such development.
That the existing regulations on the matter prevent the containers of foreign origin entering the country from being destined for the internal transport of goods destined for consumption, thus having to circulate voids within the national territory.
That such a situation causes loss of economic resources and causes unjustified costs, since the containers are unused for prolonged periods or are transported empty without any benefit, as their reuse is only possible for foreign trade operations.
To allow the use of containers from abroad in operations where the final destination of the goods transported is not for export would allow for a more rational use of available resources and avoid the costs of transporting empty containers across the national territory.
That the adoption of such measures does not imply the lack of knowledge of the final destination of the container, but rather, it intends to directly hold those responsible for the transfer of the container to the outside, both in front of the owner and in front of the customs and tax agencies.
That in order to expedite the transfer of containers to various means of transport and to prevent the successive required procedures from futile trade operations, a system must be established that personally and by all transfers of the same container, to a single customs transport agent, allowing such transfers through the use of a single documentation.
That the present is determined by the provisions of Article 487 of Law No. 22.415 and Article 86 (2) of the National Constitution.
