    Abstract: The history of the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics in Egypt (CAPMAS) shows that each statistical product has its own production system. Standardized and clear metadata that explains each production phase and the work flow was not applied. A huge amount of important information about statistical products needed to produce modernized statistics was lost. That entailed to rearrange the metadata infrastructure to produce statistics according to fundamental principles of official statistics. Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) has applied as an agreed and preferred reference model that has a flexible structure to maintain and document statistical data produced in a standardized way. The paper aims to demonstrate the experience of implementing GSBPM in CAPMAS through displaying the work effort to shift and establish that project with reference to obstacles that encountered implementation and solutions to overcome it, benefits achieved as a result of implementation, future plan, and conclusion.

    Keywords: Metadata, official statistics, standardization.
