Law of 6 October 1999 amending the Road Traffic Act 1994 relating to the issue and ingestion of registration plates
We Beatrix, at the grace of God, Queen of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, etc. etc. etc.
All of them, who will see or hear these, saluut! do know:
In this regard, we have taken the view that it is appropriate to lay down rules on the issue and intake of registration plates in order to reduce the falsely used registration plates;
In this way, we, the Council of State, and with the mean consultations of the States-General, have been well-regarded and understood to be right and to be understood by the following:
1 On the day preceding the date of entry into force of Article 70a, or authorize the affixing of a label or licence mark on licence plates and the rules applicable to them on that day, remain until the date of the entry into force of this Directive. The date of entry into force of a ministerial arrangement is to be determined in respect of the designation or valuation marks designated by that arrangement.
2 In respect of the production and issue of registration plates produced under paragraph 1, Articles 70a to 70h shall continue to be excluded from the date of application of the Ministerial Regulation referred to in paragraph 1 of that paragraph.
This Law shall enter into force on a date to be determined by Royal Decree which may be adopted in a different way for the various articles or parts thereof.
Burdens and orders that it will be placed in the Official Gazette, and that all ministries, authorities, colleges and officials who so concern will keep their hands on the precise execution.
