Abstract: This paper deals with the local solvability of systems of first order linear partial differential equations defined by a germ $\omega $ at $0\in \mathbb {R}^{n+1}$ of a $\mathbb {C}$-valued, formally integrable ($\omega \wedge d\omega =0$), 1-form with nondegenerate Levi form. More precisely, the size of the obstruction to the solvability, for $(q-1)$-forms $u$, of the equation

\begin{equation*}du\wedge \omega =\eta \wedge \omega ,\end{equation*}

where $\eta $ is a given $q$-form satisfying $d\eta \wedge \omega =0$ is estimated in terms of the De Rham cohomology relative to $\omega $
