Argentina: Scoping study
Methodology and structure of the report
In 2019, Argentina’s entry into the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) constituted a step forward in terms of rendering transparent the information and data of the industry, indicated by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development  – OECD – as the industry most likely to engage in the crime of bribery of public officials. This impulse was also echoed in the Open Government Partnership  (OGP), of which Argentina has been a member since 2012, which included transparency of the extractive industries in its Fourth Action Plan. 
This report will explain the institutional rules applicable to beneficial ownership transparency that exist in Argentina, using a qualitative analytical focus: obstacles, strengths and opportunities for improvement, encompassing general and transverse rules as well as specific rules for extractive industries. The compilation of the regulatory framework that may directly or indirectly have a bearing on the problem in question is supplemented by the inclusion of available documents, reports and publications.
