C 325/2

Notice concerning a request in accordance with Article 30 of Directive 2004/17/EC — Extension of the period

Request made on behalf of a Member State

(2005/C 325/02)

On 8 November 2005 the Commission received a request in accordance with Article 30(4) of Directive 2004/17/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 31 March 2004 coordinating the procurement procedures of entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors (1).

This request, which comes from the United Kingdom, concerns the production of electricity in that country, with the exception of Northern Ireland (the request therefore concerns the production of electricity in England, Scotland and Wales). The request was published in OJ C 305/19 of 2.12.2005. The initial period expires on 9 February 2006.

Given that the Commission services need to obtain and examine further information and in compliance with the provisions laid down in the third sentence of Article 30(6), the period allowed to the Commission to take a decision on this request is extended by one month.

The final period will therefore expire on 10 March 2006.
