All candidate countries were to submit fiscal notifications to the Commission services by 1 March 2005, in accordance with the commitments taken in the framework of the pre-accession fiscal surveillance procedure. This notification exercise is the fifth produced by the candidate countries after the annual exercises between 2001 and 2004, however the first one for Croatia, a candidate country since June 2004. Countries generally met this reporting deadline by submitting an initial notification, but most of them sent rectifications of different kinds after this date.
