Electronic Management System

ANMAT will set in motion the Electronic Management System for the procedures it involves, in accordance to ANMAT regulation 6889/10 “Going Paperless Program”. Hence, ANMAT intends to attain the objectives set forth in the provisions of Decree 378/2005 that laid down the Strategic Guidelines for the National Electronic Government Plan. E-government brings closer the government structure to the public, as it enables stakeholders to operate from their own premises, largely reduces transportation and waiting time as well as the restrain posed by public service working hours. “Going paperless” refers to an electronic system that allows us to divert from traditional paper files, therefore, facilitating all the administrative procedures for which digitalization is not otherwise exempted by Law. The following principles are to be fulfilled:
  • a) A better service for inhabitants and citizens by making simpler and easier their interrelation with the Government through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), with the purpose of reducing the time and cost involved in transactions.
  • b) A better public service management by perfecting the quality of procedures and information systems with the view to attaining an efficacious and transparent public service.
  • c) A cost-cutting policy by using all the ITC potentials to simplify government internal and government-citizen interaction procedures.
  • d) A transparency policy by facilitating the access by inhabitants and citizens to government actions and public information through ANMAT institutional website.
For the implementation of this system the “digital signature” and “e-payment” platforms was required. The digital signature is a technological tool that guarantees the authorship and integrity of digital documents by allowing the inclusion of the holograph (handwritten) signature, which is exclusive for paper documents. This system is a building-block of government electronic management. It is also possible to define the digital signature as a set of inviolable electronic data associated to a digital message that enables to ensure its integrity and the signor´s identity. This tool ensures the message authenticity as it enables third parties to recognize the signor´s identity and make sure that contents have not been changed. All this provides safety in the exchange of critical information, allows the replacement of paper documentation, cuts general costs, speeds up processing and enhances service quality. Furthermore, an e-payment system will be simultaneously implemented through Banco de la Nación Argentina bank. Said system will enable users to pay relevant fees by means of an electronic transfer from their bank accounts to ANMAT account in said bank. In addition to the above mentioned advantages of this payment system, there are others such as:
  • Transaction speed and safety.
  • Direct integration of the transaction data in ANMAT IT systems.
  • No person is required to carry out the operations.
ANMAT has a long experience in e-file management. In 1996, it started the implementation of the so called “Imaged Files” that can be considered the antecedent of the current system. Then, the inexistence of technical resources did not enable the system extension to the rest of the procedures. Such situation will be overcome in the near future thanks to the implementation of the digital signature system. The sequence for procedures is detailed in the document attached, titled as “Implementation Planning” on the right side menu.
