NACEC Activities





Contemporary Russian legislation, which regulates technical engineering activity, is characterized by the following features:


  • Legal and regulatory framework does not provide unambiguous definitions of engineering. Analysis of the legal and regulatory framework gives only a general understanding of the essence of engineering services (see Item 4, Article 148 of the RF Tax Code, RF Federal State Statistics Service Decree dated 18.09.2007 No 64, GOST R15.011-96, etc.).

  • Until now activity of an engineer was not qualified as a type of business activity and was not included in the Russian Industry Classification System (but in some countries income from provision of engineering services is a significant part of the Gross National Income).

  • The existing system of regulating the engineering activity covers only capital construction and does not cover design work in machine building, ship building, metallurgy industries.

  • The Russian model of self-regulating the technical engineering activity is not compatible with the model, accepted in the WTO countries, and it creates significant difficulties for Russian companies in running their business internationally.





Representatives of NACEC are members of Working groups at Steering committees under the State Duma and the Federation Council on development of strategic initiatives in the area of investment engineering.


The NACEC expert competencies are as follows:


  • Development of new draft laws and implementing changes into the existing enactments
  • Participation in the development and expert review of the regulatory and technical documentation
  • Development of a dossier, which regulate the industrial investment and construction engineering
  • Expert review of regulations and laws
  • Work in expert groups in executive, legislative bodies, and in business associations





  • July 7, 2015 – A draft of Federal law ‘On Technical Engineering and Engineering Activity in the RF’ was approved. It was developed with contribution by NACEC experts, working in the Interim Commission of the Federation Council.
  • April 2015 – A pilot project on implementation of engineering services accounting methods was launched (NACEC representatives are working in expert groups of Ministry of Industry and Trade, and RF Federal State Statistics Service).
  • Since 2014 – NACEC experts are working with the Department of strategic development of Ministry of Industry and Trade over the subprogramme ‘Development of Engineering Activity and Industrial Design’ (endorsed by RF Government Decree No 328 dated April 15, 2014). The programme will provide fiscal loosening and additional subsidy to engineering companies by Ministry of Industry and Trade.



Educational Initiatives




While knowledge-intensive, innovative markets are developing, the significance of human factor is becoming higher than technical factor, and the role of specialists with systemic views in project management increases.


putin2Vladimir Putin, President of Russia

It is high time to stop chasing the quantity and to focus on the quality of staff training, to arrange training of engineers in strong institutions and universities, which established steady relations with industries, and it is better, certainly, to do it in your regions

Appeal to the RF Federal Assembly dated December 4, 2014





NACEC task– to establish a system of multi-level training and certification of highly qualified multi discipline specialists, who are able to work functionally as engineering consultants, and to become an interface between academic environment and industry.


atomspecThus, for example, the nuclear industry, which is a loco of innovative development of Russia, urgently needs consulting engineers: in accordance with the global strategy of development till 2027, the corporation plans to execute about 40 construction projects, therefore it will require over 4.5 thousand engineering specialists.


To meet the market demands, Moscow State University of Civil Engineering, together with NACEC experts, developed and launched a training course to prepare specialists in industrial investment and construction engineering in the nuclear industry.


The training programme promotes deep and systemic engagement of a specialist in the learning process, even after the course is completed. Thus, the programme is a multi-stage process, where all participants must learn the theoretical framework, take an internship, and pass the certification exam, regardless of their experience and competencies.


In future we hope to distribute our experience – by means of establishing a network of regional training and certification centres of engineering consultants.


In addition to developing NACEC programmes, our experts participate in development of higher professional education and continuing professional development programmes (together with the Federation Council and Ministry of Education and Science), and also take part in development of the Professional Standard of an Engineer (together with the Federation Council and Ministry of Labour of Russia).

89% of respondents from engineering companies and 67% of specialists of university-based established engineering centres, who participated in the survey, claim the lack of engineering staff.






NACEC experts together with Ministry of Industry and Trade developed measures to support engineering companies (Subprogramme No 19). One of its tasks is to establish regional training and certification centres of engineering consultants.



An academic programme, to train specialists in investment and industrial engineering for Rosatom Branch Centre of the Capital Construction, was launched in our Corporate Department in Moscow State University of Civil Engineering



At the International Forum of Young Workers of Energy Sector and Industry ‘Forsage’ our NACEC experts conducted a series of interactive seminars on managing integrated projects in nuclear power sector.



Development and adoption of advanced technologies




putin2Vladimir Putin, President of Russia

It is required to combine efforts of design, creative teams, and fast growing companies, which are ready to absorb the cutting edge developments, to involve leading universities, research centres, Russian Academy of Sciences, large business societies of our country

Appeal to the RF Federal Assembly dated December 4, 2014





A special committee was established in NACEC on development and adoption of advanced technologies. The objective of the committee is to build a single database, which will store knowledge from subject matter and related areas, will accumulate and adapt the best international experience to Russian specifics, and will become a stable foundation for development of our own ideas and technologies.


It is not a trivial task and requires a deep and systemic approach. However, we think that combining our efforts with the best representatives of the Russian science, education and knowledge-intensive industries, we will be able to develop a unique knowledge database, which will serve as a useful tool for consulting engineers in making decisions.
