Bs. As., 16/6/92

See Background

VISTO Act No. 12,346 and its amendments, Act No. 23,696 on State Reform; Regulations No. 27,911 of 17 April 1939 and 1929 of 3 December 1987, amendments and supplements and Decree No. 2284 of 31 October 1991; and


That Decree No. 2284/91 has initiated a process of deregulation of the Argentine economy, aimed at eliminating those obstacles that hinder economic expansion, limit investments and generate inadequate allocation of resources.

That the National Government has implemented a comprehensive programme of transformation of the national transport system, aimed at rationalizing the supply of services, expanding investments and reducing costs, in the perspective of contributing to the increased competitiveness of the economy and improving the quality of services.

To this end, it is appropriate to adapt the regime of the land transport of passengers to the principles of opening and competition that the National Government has implemented in other transport sectors in order to ensure the harmonization of the operating modalities of the different components of the transport system.

On the other hand, the demand for passenger transport services has increased and will be increased in the future as a result of the reconversion of rail services and the relative advantages they have in terms of flexibility and diversity.

That for such reasons, the passenger car transport market is in a situation in which the demand is not properly satisfied in time, form and quantity of services.

That the protection of the general interest requires the reorganization of the records and the revision of the requirements for the exercise of the transport activities, with the aim of specifically ensuring the necessary control of the services, the compliance of the rules in the fiscal and insurance field, and the respect by the carriers of the rules concerning the mechanical and security control of the units.

That the fleeting transport, although it has achieved considerable expansion, is governed by a regulation of more than half a century that, in the current circumstances, is absolutely inadequate for the organization of quality and low cost transport services for the public.

That under Decree No. 2284/91 the implementation of a modern regime for the carriage of passengers, which allows the organization of services in free competition and the increase of supply in quantity, variety and quality, strengthening the links between the provinces and regions of the Republic, all without prejudice to the guarantee of proper supervision and control of the services.

That the regime approved by the present will allow all established companies and those that are incorporated in the future to serve freely on all routes, also ensuring the continuity of public services in those routes that determine the authority of application.

That the regime adopted by the present in the field of passenger transport allows the harmonization of public service obligations with a system of free traffic services, reconciling the principles of free competition and guardianship of the general interest.

That the posting activity has been declared "subject to privatization", so that under Article 10 of Law No. 23.696 the NATIONAL EXECUTIVE PODER has been empowered to exclude those provisions that hinder the process of privatization and deregulation by establishing privileges or distorting monopolies of market freedom.

That by the above considerations, it is necessary to remove rules that prevent passenger transport companies from carrying correspondence.

That the present regime determines the modalities of the provision of the tourist services, tending to the development of them in order to evaluate the important potential with which, in this field, the Nation also avoids the dilution of its specificity both commercial and economic.

That the establishment of a single Passenger Transpose Registry will allow the concentration and reorganization of different controls, nationalizing the use of resources and avoiding the overlap of procedures and requirements.

That the national ports and airports subject to federal jurisdiction, and in order to facilitate the best access to them, the free entry of passenger transport services, including the taximeter service, must be made available.

That the NATIONAL AERONAUTICA POLICY and the NAVAL ARGENTINA PREFECTURA, as the authorities responsible for the security and order within the jurisdictions of the airports and the ports, should be responsible for ensuring the access and security of the providers of the services involved in the present.

That for the success of the present deregulation scheme in a framework of indispensable order, it is advisable to have a single monitoring and control agency, that guarantees the quality of the services, meets the demands of the users, detects the fallacies and possible manoeuvres that affect the free game of supply and demand or the rules of a healthy and indispensable competition.

That the present decree is issued in the use of the powers granted by Article 86 Subparagraphs 1 and 2 of the National Constitution.
