All FIM events have mandatory regulations and penalties for non-compliance with the environmental protection rules described in the FIM Environmental Code. Also, they have guidelines for organising high-impact events based on a series of mitigation measures to protect natural resources and support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) achievement. The FIM has a highly trained technical team to carry out sound measurements so that participating motorcycles do not exceed the limits allowed by technical and environmental regulations. In addition, each event sanctioned by the FIM is attended by an environmental steward who has been trained by expert instructors from the FIM Academy in matters of sustainability, who has passed a rigorous selection and evaluation system, and who must have an international environmental commissioner license.

At the beginning of the year, a seminar was held by CAMOD, the Confederación Argentina de Motociclismo Deportivo, the organisers and the FIM to train stewards and staff for this event.

Each rider must respect the FIM Environmental Code and must be equipped with a protective mat under their motorcycle. Homologated mats will be available to buy on the paddock. A working fire extinguisher is mandatory at each service area.

Sound level control and noise pollution prevention

FIM motorcycle sound measurement specialists perform technical inspections on all participant’s motorcycles, including decibel measurements, using advanced equipment and measurement methods. The event counts on an experienced Sound Control Officer (SCO) and/or an acoustic engineer, if applicable. Additionally, Exhaust pipes and silencers must fulfil all the requirements concerning sound control (art 1.79 AND 1.31 Enduro ISDE technical rules).

The sound system in the paddock is also regulated and adequate to minimise the impact.

Minimise noise from the operation of competition, support, and organisation vehicles, following monitoring to detect if allowable limits are exceeded and to prevent damage to human health and/or local wildlife.

(For more information, consult the Sustainability Management Plan.)

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was carried out by a national engineer who is also an Environmental Steward for FIM. The EIA is a mandatory document at the national level which aims to identify, predict, assess, and mitigate potential environmental impacts that a project or activity may cause in the short, medium, and long term. It is a technical-administrative preventive procedure, as provided by Law No. 25.675, also known as the General Environmental Law, which authorises the competent environmental authority to issue environmental licenses. It is available at the event’s secretary upon request.

Selection of routes

This competition takes place in various locations throughout San Juan. However, the paddock will remain the same throughout all events, which will be held at the San Juan Villicum Circuit located in Albardon, a town in the northern part of San Juan. The circuit is situated in a mountainous area with little vegetation. It is around 17 km from the capital city and is not a crowded area. The course is approved by FIA and FIM, which makes it an ideal location for this activity. The facilities available at the circuit include race control, security, water facilities, electricity, parking, a heliport, and a hospital. +events (Mas Eventos), the Organiser, the local Government entity Tourism and Culture, and the Secretary of State for Environment and Sustainable Development have been participating to improve this relationship before, during and after the event.

Respect for the National and local patrimony.

Local authorities will be coordinating to restrict access to the protected areas.
A designated spectator area has been established to enhance safety and protect the sensitives areas of the event.

Measures to protect the ground and biodiversity

Soil Quality –

The organisation is committed to restore altered soils resulting from different activities carried out during the event’s development. For the prevention of spills of oils, fats, and other polluting substances, the staff working with hazardous materials has been instructed to act in case of accidents that may cause pollution.

All participants must use an environmental mat regulated under the specifications of the FIM Environment Code both in the Parc Fermé and in all controls and refuelling areas. (Specific conditions apply in each event and are described in the supplementary regulations)

Motorcycle washing areas must also have adequate drainage and surfaces. (FIM Environmental Code). Inside the paddock, there will be a dedicated washing area.

Respect for Flora and Fauna

Protecting biodiversity is of utmost importance to the organisation. A plan to protect the fauna and flora of the study area should be implemented, focusing on the areas where the start, finish, and supply sectors are located.


  • Preserve the existing flora in areas directly and indirectly affected by the project.
  • There will be an info desk in the paddock for the Secretary of State for Environment and Sustainable Development of San Juan to raise awareness among all event participants.
  • Plant species extraction and cutting are prohibited in direct and indirect areas.

It is not allowed to burn cleared vegetation, waste, or any other materials that can easily catch fire in an open space.

It is strictly forbidden to collect and/or extract wildlife. Any such activity is prohibited.

Strict control of the waste generated

The waste management of the event will be coordinated with the local Municipalities. Dedicated personnel and equipment have been prepared to carry out the task.

In the case of the Paddock, the operation of collecting and transitory disposal of waste is carried out by a company hired for special, hazardous waste. (More information in the Sustainability Management Plan is available in the Sportity app)

Paddock Rules ISDE

1/ It is strictly forbidden to dump your waste waters on the ground. Failure in applying this rule while expose you to direct prosecution by the competent local authorities (environment police). Teams are invited to collect their waste waters in a tank and to empty them at the right spot at located at the paddock entrance and clearly indicated.

Raise awareness of the participants about responsible behaviour

All participants in FIM competition are called to respect and comply with current regulations.

In the tests and paddock, an audio message, produced by the National Federation, will be delivered regularly by the speaker at the destination of the spectators for security and respect for nature and the environment.

Paper consumption Reduction

All results and regulations will be managed through a special mobile application, significantly reducing paper consumption.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

The event has been aligned with the SDG´s


All unavoidable emissions will be calculated using the FIM CO2 calculator and offset by investing in international projects.


This is an event that is also designed for the participation of women. Also, some areas in the paddock and particular test have access for people with restricted mobility and special parking. Dedicated services for people with limited mobility.
