fixing the derived intervention prices for white sugar for the 2005/2006 marketing year


Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1260/2001 of 19 June 2001 on the common organisation of the markets in the sugar sector (1), and in particular Article 2(4) thereof,



Article 2(1)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 1260/2001 fixes the intervention price for white sugar for non-deficit areas at EUR 631,9/tonne for the 2001/2002 to 2005/2006 marketing years.


Article 2(1)(b) of that Regulation provides that derived intervention prices for white sugar are to be fixed for each deficit area each year. When those prices are fixed, account is to be taken of the regional variations in the price of sugar, which, given a normal harvest and free movement of sugar, may be expected to occur under natural conditions of price formation on the market and in view of experience gained and the costs of transporting sugar from surplus areas to deficit areas.


To establish whether an area is a deficit area, projections should be made on the basis of the data returned by the Member States relating both to the current marketing year as regards consumption trends, and to the prospects for the coming marketing year as regards developments in available production. As a result, areas should be recognised as deficit areas only where the projections clearly indicate that a deficit is likely to occur.


On this basis, the areas of production in Spain, Ireland and the United Kingdom, Portugal and Finland are likely to be deficit areas.


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


Article 1

The derived intervention prices for white sugar in the deficit areas of the Community for the 2005/2006 marketing year shall be:


EUR 648,80/tonne for all areas in Spain;


EUR 646,50/tonne for all areas in Ireland and the United Kingdom;


EUR 646,50/tonne for all areas in Portugal;


EUR 646,50/tonne for all areas in Finland.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on 1 July 2005.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 30 June 2005.
