(3)

Decision 2005/430/EC, Euratom must therefore be corrected.

(4)

Since the annual periods for the application of the concessions begin on 1 July, provision should be made for this Regulation to apply from 1 July 2005.

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Sugar,
