Well that'd be right for fresh film, if it is run by a lab/standard process.

If it's lost a stop of sensitivity, EI12 with 1 stop lab/standard process pull (developing time) should be good though I think.

But if you are doing your own, I suggest you try it sometime with fresh film by a way of other than decreasing developing time, ie: I'd suggest diluting first dev, or possibly adding extra restrainer.

If you mix your own, you can also increase hydroquinone to phenidone/metol ratio for more contrast.
