National Cadastre Law - Argentine Republic

Spanish English


The Federal Council of Cadastre was established on December 4, 1958 with the aim of promoting, coordinating and directing the execution of the tasks relating to the Territorial Cadastre of the Argentine Republic in its physical, economic and legal aspects. It has fulfilled uninterruptedly a function in favour of the cadastral development of the country, though it was legally recognized since the promulgation of the National Cadastre Law 26.209 which was sanctioned on March, 2007.


  • To advise the national and provincial authorities at the request of them or on our own initiative.
  • To promote and coordinate research works, advice, and contribution to the formation and improvement of the Cadastre in its physical, economic and legal aspects.
  • To develop and improve the techniques of cadastral registration and the ones leading to the implementation of land-use information systems directed at the multipurpose cadastre.
  • To get technical-scientific assistance from public and private entities, professionals and teachers linked to the cadastral subject.
  • To promote the progress of the cadastral legislation modernizing the operating methods and techniques.
  • To execute effectively the interrelation of the cadastral bodies with the rest of the Public Administration.

Current context of the cadastre

The Argentine cadastre plays an important role in society and it has many years experience since time immemorial. In the last years, it has progressed significantly because of the technological advances in geo-information and the possibilities of realization of cadastral development projects. Provinces have mostly achieved this progress thanks to the local governments' contributions and loans from the World Bank, in other cases.
On the other hand, we continue moving towards the implementation of Systems of Land-use Information directed at multipurpose cadastres, so in this way, the cadastre increases its potentials as regards the provision of services and provides greater guarantee and precision in the storage of juridical and geometric information of the territory.

Opportunities and Challenges

Nowadays, most of the provincial cadastres have similar opportunities and challenges. Thus, the action of the Federal Council of Cadastre should be coordinated so that the different Member States contribute jointly to:
  • Integrate the experiences of the cadastral developments from the last few years.
  • Formulate new views in order that the investments made result in increasing benefits.
  • Examine methodologies to keep the results that were obtained and, in that way, to plan the future cadastral development with the clear view that the cadastre integrates the basic data in order to develop an infrastructure of geospatial data or an infrastructure of spatial data (IDES, by its initials in Spanish)
  • Examine the cadastral legislation.
  • Explore new ways of customer services, for example products through the web.
  • Determine the priority needs of training and the most effective ways to achieve it.
  • Identify the most effective ways of communication and to explore the means to integrate the Argentine cadastre with the main national and international forums linked to the subject matter that is incumbent on the CFC.
