COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1004/2005

of 30 June 2005

laying down detailed rules for the opening and administration of the tariff quotas for sugar products originating in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo, as provided for in Council Regulation (EC) No 2007/2000

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2007/2000 of 18 September 2000 introducing exceptional trade measures for countries and territories participating in or linked to the European Union’s Stabilisation and Association process, amending Regulation (EC) No 2820/98, and repealing Regulations (EC) No 1763/1999 and (EC) No 6/2000 (1), and in particular the second paragraph of Article 6 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 4(4) of Council Regulation (EC) No 2007/2000 lays down that imports of sugar products under headings 1701 and 1702 of the Combined Nomenclature originating in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo (2), shall be subject to annual duty-free tariff quotas. Those quotas should be opened on a multiannual basis and detailed rules should be adopted for their application for 12-month periods starting on 1 July.

(2)

In view of introducing a duty free tariff quota in order to ensure an economically sustainable development of the sugar sectors of the countries concerned as well as considering the relatively large quantity approved for Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo, the tariff quota of this country should be managed according to a system of export certificates issued by authorities in that country. The form and layout of this certificate and the procedures for using them should be specified.

(3)

To ensure efficient management of preferential imports under this Regulation, measures need to be adopted making it possible for the Member States to keep records of the relevant data, and to report them to the Commission.

(4)

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