COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1667/2005
of 13 October 2005
amending Regulation (EC) No 60/2004 laying down transitional measures in the sugar sector by reason of the accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia
THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,
Having regard to the Treaty of Accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia,
Having regard to the Act of Accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia, and in particular the first paragraph of Article 41 thereof,
Whereas:

(1)

Under Article 7(2) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 60/2004 of 14 January 2004 laying down transitional measures in the sugar sector by reason of the accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia (1), the amount to be charged to those Member States for surplus quantities not eliminated is to be taken into account for the calculation of the production levies for the marketing year 2004/05.

(2)

The amount to be charged will not be known when the 2004/05 production levies are calculated in September 2005, as the deadline for providing proof of elimination of surplus quantities was deferred to 31 March 2006 by Commission Regulation (EC) No 651/2005. Provision should therefore be made for that amount to be taken into account for the calculation of the production levies for the marketing year 2005/06, in September 2006.

(3)

Regulation (EC) No 60/2004 should be amended accordingly. As this amendment must precede the fixing of the production levies for the marketing year 2004/05, this Regulation should enter into force immediately.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Sugar,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
Article 1
Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 60/2004 is replaced by the following:
