UL AR-S Mark – The reliable way obtain access to the Argentinean market


The safety regulation system in Argentina has been in place since August 18, 1998 and is governed by the mandatory compliance law of Resolution 92/98. The scope covers most of the electrical and electronic products marketed in Argentina that fall within the electrical range of:

 Voltage CurrentPower 
 50 - 1000 Vac   up to 63 A up to 5kVA
 50 - 1500 Vdc  up to 63 A up to 5kVA

The following products, although rated less than 50V, must comply with the regulation:

• Luminaries and supply systems for luminaries, supplied by sources connected to a line of more than 50V of alternate current
• Dichroic lamps and their lamp holders
• Manual portable tools
• Fence electrifiers
• Muscular electro-stimulators which complement physical activity

Products within the scope of Resolution 92/98 are required to bear the Argentina S Mark issued by a certification organization accredited by the OAA (Argentinean Accreditation Organization).

UL has obtained accreditation from the OAA and recognition from the National Office of Internal Commerce (DNCI). Under this accreditation and recognition, UL is authorized to certify all products that come under the scope of Resolution 92/98.

Standards issued by the IEC are widely adopted by IRAM (Instituto Racionalizacion Argentino de Materiales) as base requirements for Argentina national standards, supplemented by national differences to accommodate local practices.

For example, plugs must be certified to IRAM standards. In addition to the usual marks, in Argentina a warning label must be attached to the power cord.

The UL family of companies around the world can provide testing services and associated reports under a corporate Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) with UL de Argentina that is recognized by the Argentine government. The recognized MRA encompasses the entire scope of UL programs and services including UL's Data Acceptance Program.
