The procedure was jointly conducted by the National Centre for Public Accreditation (Russia) and the Higher Education Evaluation Centre of the Ministry of Education, HEEC (China).

The joint evaluation of the educational programmes of Chinese higher education institutions is unique both for Russia and China. Two leading Russian universities underwent such a procedure (Far Eastern Federal University and Lobachevsky State University of Nizhni Novgorod). In 2016 joint accreditation was held in one of the Chinese universities (the University of International Business and Economics, Beijing).

Joint accreditation promotes the development of educational programmes and educational institutions on the whole. Programmes are given an opportunity to check quality at the international level and receive recommendations of the best foreign experts. Most significantly, the results of such a review are approved by the certificates on joint accreditation of the two countries.
