  • The tariff for human serum albumin (NCM 3002.10.37), a hemoderivative, has been reduced from 4% to 2% and is limited to 360.000 bottles of 10 grams each.
  • The tariff on factor VIII concentrate (NCM3002.10.39) has been reduced from 2% to 0% and is limited to 34.500 bottles of 500 international .

Camex resolution 85/12 took effect on 3 December 2012 and stays in force for a period of 180 days.
 
On 21 December 2012, Camex resolution no. 95/12 excluded human serum albumin from resolution no. 85/12.
 
On 31 May 2013, Camex resolution no. 37/13 revoked the tariff on factor VIII concentrate. On the same date, Camex resolution 38/13 prolonged the tariff reduction on 6-hexanolactam stipulated in Camex resolution no. 85/12 until 3 December 2013.
