ASMS & Journal's History

Great attention in our country was always paid to the specialists’ training and retraining. Constant improvement of the role of standardization and metrology in the national economy required fundamental, systematic training and higher quality in education.
Academy for standardization, metrology and certification was found in 1968 as a National institution for further vocational training in the field of standardization, product quality and metrology (NISM).
The Institute was established by order of the Committee of standards, measures and measuring instruments of the USSR Council of Ministers according to the decree On Improving the training system for managers and professionals in industry, construction, transport, communication and commerce released in 1967.
When forming NISM included 7 faculties, 4 institute departments, St. Petersburg branch with 2 faculties and 18 study support centers in different USSR cities. There were 296 people in the institute stuff, among them professors and doctors of science.
While its first academic year the institute had 18 training programs on standardization and quality and 11 metrology programs. Within a year the institute trained 7500 people, and after 5 years a contingent of listeners has grown up to 18,500 people per year.
Because of its intensive development work on standardization NISM also became a training standardization learning center. For example, in NISM were organized lecturers’ study courses on relevant disciplines in higher and secondary educational institutions.
NISM has acquired various international links. Experts in standardization, metrology and quality management from more than 30 countries, including Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Mongolia, Cuba, Vietnam, the developing countries of Asia and Africa were trained there.
In 1992 it was renamed as the Central Institute for retraining and further education in standardization, metrology and certification (CISM). CISM audience contingent in 1992-93 has decreased to 3-4 thousand people per year.
With the RF laws On Standardization, On traceability ensuring, On product and services certification, On Protection of Consumer Rights it was clearly identified the need for extensive training and personnel skills improvement in order to implement for the law realization. In 1995, taking into account increasing goals and objectives it was decided to upgrade the educational institution to the Academy for standardization, metrology and certification (educational) (ASMS).
In 2000 ASMS began to publish its own journal Kvalifikatsiya i Kachestvo (Qualification and Quality). Its first aim was to ensure the educational process.
The Federal Law On technical regulation initiated the development of the educational system: the contingent of students was growing, all educational programs were actualized, the number of specializations increased, short-term seminars on topical issues of technical regulation, metrology and management became part of the training process.
Since 2004, it was decided to rename and reorient the journal. So, it obtained its new name – Kompetentnost' (The Competence). The journal had received hard tasks to do. It had to win strong position in mass media market in the short terms and enter the Russia The Higher Attestation Comission (VAC) list.
Thanks to staff professionalism, scientific advices of leading Russian and foreign experts, its own style and publications quality the journal was included in the Russia VAC list in 2010.
We can surely say that the journal became recognizable, has formed its traditions and priorities, and has its own range of authors and readers. The key task is to move with the times. That’s why the Russian economy modernization, innovations, information technology development are among the most important areas of the journal.
On the 8th Moscow International Salon of Innovations and Investments the journal Kompetentnost' won the gold medal in the category Press about innovations.
Materials of the journal publications are actively used at conferences, seminars, reports and are frequently discussed by the experts during round tables.
