Statute When it was created, the AARC got, in November 2005 the statute of an institution of an administrative nature (EPA). In September 2008 it was transformed into a public institution of an industrial and commercial nature (EPIC), with a board of directors. This change resulted from the analysis by the authorities of the first exercises of the AARC showing the necessity of ensuring a greater flexibility in the functioning through legal status and financial autonomy.
