In Argentina, the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights oversees the Inspección General de Justicia (IGJ) which is the Superintendency of Corporations in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The accessibility of corporate and public records has waxed and waned under different Argentinian presidents – from reasonably open access to mostly locked down. Although there is still no electronic access to the commercial registry like there is in a handful of Latin American countries, if you need an equivalent certificate of good standing in Argentina, for the moment, it’s relatively accessible.
The certificate itself is called a Certificado de Vigencia y Pleno Cumplimiento (CEVP) which is an equivalent Certificate of Good Standing. The certificate bears an electronic signature, and is in Spanish. The turnaround time varies based on the time of the year and workload of the registry but expect 2 – 4 weeks on average.
