The Dubai Land Department (DLD) has closed its records department to make the transition to a fully smart archiving system.

To achieve the transformation, DLD has collaborated with a company specialised in photovoltaic archiving. The latest technologies have been adopted to create a new smart archiving system for all files related to DLD services.

Sultan Butti bin Mejren, director-general of DLD, said: "We are pleased to announce the launch of our smart archiving system, which will replace our records department and traditional archiving operations, representing a key step in our ongoing smart transformation strategy."

The DLD will retain its staff from the records department. They will be trained to handle the new technology or become members of other departments.

The DLD's IT department has converted over five million files to a smart format and transferred them to the smart archiving system. The DLD has confirmed that 470,642 ownership contracts have also been transferred, including 20,594 for buildings, 135,878 for land and 313,170 for units.
