Applications for the development and design of software, databases and the supply of equipments to support the issuance of new metal plates have been launched as of August 2008 in Nasr City Traffic Unit.
Since then, the work of issuing the new metal plates has been carried out by running the applications with the rest of the traffic units in the main governorates. Until most of the old panels were converted, most of the vehicles were transferred to the governorates of Cairo, Giza, Alexandria and Qalyoubia with new metal plates.
Also, through the central operation of the databases, the production cycle of the new metal plates has been fully managed and executed, from manufacturing applications (at the level of all governorates of Egypt and all types of licenses) to the continuation of their disbursement to a vehicle (at the level of the four main governorates) Which then renew the licenses of the vehicle to which the plates is transferred, the transfer of ownership or other transactions, and until the end of the life cycle of the plate to be executed and re-manufactured again.
