Azerbaijan, Baku, July 2 / corr Trend U.Ismayilova /
The Azerbaijani State Property Committee and the Norwegian Cadastre and Cartography Organization signed a grant agreement yesterday to build an address registry.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev issued a decree May 19, 2009 setting forth the committee's goals in creating and maintaining an address registry.
According to the grant agreement, the project will be implemented within one year.
The registry will play an important role in regulating the country's address system. The major objective is to establish a registry for applying, storing and distributing addresses among users based on an earlier presidential decree dated Nov. 27, 2008.
During the project's first stage, international consultants will help define the necessary technical requirements for the registry, and also establish an informational database.
In the second stage, the centralized database will offer operative data about addresses. Meanwhile, the current system of issuing and managing addresses will be canceled.
The registry will also include data on property types, facility owners, current and former addresses and other systematized data. The data will be provided in tables and texts.
The registry will allow users to both receive and exchange electronic addresses.
EURADIN and INSPIRE will bring the system in line with international standards.
The Norwegian Organization for Cadastre and Cartography will manage and control the project and ensure maximum local employment.
