Under Article 142 of Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007, in order to guarantee the supplies necessary for the production of the products referred to in Article 62(2) of that Regulation, the Commission may suspend, in whole or in part, the application of import duties for certain quantities of sugar.

The quantities of industrial import sugar for the 2009/2010 marketing year should therefore be set accordingly.
