Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products (1), and in particular Article 15 thereof,

Whereas:

Given the nature of the final beneficiaries of this scheme, it is necessary to provide for some time to elapse between the entry into force of the Regulation and its application in order to allow beneficiaries to adapt to the new aid level.
