  • Adiponitrile (NCM 2926.90.91) went from 12% to 2% and is limited to a quota of 30'700 tons
  • Rabies vaccine (NCM 3002.20.29) went from 2% to 0% and is limited to a quota of 1.5million units
  • p-Xylene (NCM 2902.43.00) went from 4% to 0% and is limited to a quota of 160'000 tons

 
Six months tariff reduction on:

  • Polypropylene film rolls of 50cm up to 100cm (NCM 3920.20.19) went from 25% to 2% and is limited to a quota of 480 tons
