VISTO Act No. 24.557 and
On the part of the public sector, it is necessary to reconcile the need to achieve the full and timely granting of the benefits provided for in the WORKING RISK LAW with the existence of specific budget lines and selection procedures to proceed with the affiliation of an Aseguradora authorized to operate under the law that is regulated.
That is why it becomes imperative to postpone the affiliation of this sector until 1 January 1997, presuming that it possesses the necessary economic-financial solvency and sufficient guarantees for the granting of benefits in kind, indispensable requirements for accessing the self-insurance regime.
That from that date and in order to adopt a decision consistent with the rest of the policies aimed at the reform and rationalization of the NATIONAL STATE, the obligation is established that the NATIONAL STATE is to delegate the protection of the risks of work in an Asegurer authorized to operate under the Law that is regulated.
The determination of the requirements to which the provinces, their municipalities and the MUNICIPALITY OF THE CIUDAD OF BUENOS AIRES must be adapted from 1 January 1997 in order to access the self-insurance regime.
That the present is dictated in the use of the powers conferred by article 99 (2) of the NATIONAL CONSTITUTION.
