The Board of the Ministry of Education and Science reviewed and approved the self-certification report of the NQF's compliance with the EHEA Qualifications Framework criteria. This is an important step in the implementation of the Ukrainian NQF, as the referencing of qualification frameworks plays a key role in the development of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and is an effective tool for the interaction of education systems and labor market. Qualifications frameworks promote the development of higher education, educational programs, the recognition of qualifications, and the transparency and comparability of qualifications at the national and international levels.

The report was prepared by working group consisting of representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Economy, National Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, State Service of Education Quality, National Qualifications Agency, Information and Image Center, higher education institutions and other organizations, as well as experts from Germany and Latvia. The report was based on a study of the NQF's compliance with the EHEA Qualifications Framework criteria and verification procedures approved in 2005 by the Bologna Follow Up Group. The conclusion of the working group states that «there is significant similarity between the National Qualifications Framework (levels 5-8) and the Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area».

The self-certification report was posted on the MESU website in Ukrainian and English, and can be found on the ENIC Ukraine website under the National Qualification Framework topic.
