Import

Resolution meets the request of the Ministry of Health to import immunization for HPV, Hepatitis A and DTPa

Resolution Camex No. 89 was published on Friday (1st) in the Official Federal Gazette (DOU) , temporarily eliminating the Import Tax rates for HPV, Hepatitis A and DTPa vaccines due to shortages in the Brazilian market .

• DTPa vaccines (against diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis) with a quota of 5 million doses, classified in code 3002.20.27 of the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM) and HPV - recombinant human papillomavirus, against types 6, 11, 16, 18 for the prevention of cervical cancer (NCM 3002.20.29), with a quota of 6 million doses, will be exempt from the Import Tax for one year.

• The Hepatitis A vaccine (NCM 3002.20.29) will be zeroed for a quota of 2.25 million doses for a period of six months, starting on April 2, 2018.

According to the standard approved by Camex, the Secretariat of Foreign Trade (Secex) of the Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services (MDIC) will issue a supplementary regulation, in order to establish the criteria for allocating the quotas mentioned.
