A 3-day workshop on Vehicle Regulations and Periodical Technical Inspection (PTI) is being organized by the EuroMed Transport Support Project, in Cairo, Egypt, between the 22nd and 24th of October 2018, hosted by the Ministry of Interior/Traffic Police.
During the 3rd day of the Workshop, a field visit to the Transport and management Center is going to take place, for a limited number of officers from the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Transport, Egyptian Organization for Standardization & Quality and Ministry of Trade.
This demand driven activity, based on the priorities identified in the RTAP 2014-2020, is regarded as a natural continuation of the work being implemented in Egypt under the EuroMed TSP, that would provide the officials at the Ministries, state institutions and companies and the private sector involved, the necessary technical backstopping and information on the accession to and practical implementation of two major UN Agreements relating to Vehicle Regulations and Periodical Technical Inspections.
The general objective of the Workshop is to support the accession of Egypt to the 1997 UN Agreement on Vehicle Regulations and to assist Egypt to effectively implement this Agreement as well as the 1958 Agreement, to which Egypt is contracting Party since 2012.
The specific objective is to provide necessary technical assistance and institutional capacity building to competent authorities to adapt national legislation to the provisions and practices provided in the 1958 and 1997 UN Agreements and effectively implement them in their national and international road transport operations.
