19. Objects within every section of the exhibition are categorized into nominations corresponding to titles and types of objects. Inside every nomination certain objects are allocated in the alphabetical order - in accordance with capital letters of names of rightholders (companies - owners of objects). Every new nomination is first of all established - "opened" by the first rightholder to present the relevant object for the exhibition. The following owners of similar objects present their exhibits within already opened nominations.

20. During the calendar year of the «Progressive quality XXI» exhibition, the certain exposition is considered to be successful in those branches where at least one nomination has been opened (stated) by exhibitors.

Nomination is the stereotypic (separated and wide) category of products directly including identical (similar) certain types of exhibited objects. For example the section "Fishery products" may include the nomination "Acipenseridae". Within this nomination the exhibitor may present products made of sturgeon, sterlet, stellate sturgeon, beluga sturgeon etc.

Attention!

Participation in the exhibition assumes the highest possible degree of honesty of exhibitors and experts as well as fullness of their responsibility for decisions made and actions performed within the framework of the exhibition.

Any person concerned possessing the qualification needed to carry out professional assessment of qualitative features of corresponding objects has the right to address the IUCI with the motivated note objecting the exhibition results in case if participants of the exhibition achieve certain results due to influence on the expert community or misrepresentation.

Dialogue window with the exhibitor

                       

 

23. Rightholders are responsible for objectivity, fairness and fullness of information concerning the object presented.

24. The presentation traditionally consists of the following elements:

1) Photos of the object (photos of all key features reflecting functional and qualitative signs of the object);

2) Video review of the object (video of all key features reflecting functional and qualitative signs of the object as well as the demonstration of the mechanism of functioning and servicing of the object);

3) Electronic copies of various documents, verifying the status and qualitative assessment of the object, as well as recommendations related to this object, provided by various institutions (any documents related to the object may be presented). If such documents are concluded not in English, the notarially verified translation into English will be required.

4) Description and main characteristics of the object, as well as additional explanations necessary in order to carry out the independent expertise. If such information is presented not in English, the authentic translation into English will be required. Holder of rights for the object independently determines the scale and fullness of information regarding the object submitted to the expert community. Possible directions of such informing should correspond to the nomenclature of possible criteria of the expert assessment listed in par.1.8.

 

The rightholder must be objectively interested in presentation of absolutely reliable and full information concerning the object to the expert community, because only such a format of information about this object may allow the expert community to perform professional and all-around expert assessment. This will also exclude the possibility of further objections from the side of third parties.

 

The rightholder is recommended to get acquainted with the Responsibility Notification (par. 26) before preparation and submission of the object presentation.

 

IV. CLAUSES AND THE RESPONSIBILITY NOTIFICATION

25. ATTENTION! Organizers of the exhibition and representatives of the international expert community recommend participants of the exhibition to show absolute fairness, responsibility and professionalism in the process of preparation and submission of presentations! We believe that only all-round and objective preparation of presentational information can serve your interests, present your object properly, ensure its fair assessment and confirm your high business reputation!

26. RESPONSIBILITYNOTIFICATION

A. Possible responsibility of the exhibition participants

Specificity of organization of the International permanent commercial and industrial exhibition «Progressive quality XXI» is in many aspects based on the presumption of fairness of rightholders presenting their objects for participation in the exhibition. Such fairness assumes objective and honest presentation of necessary information concerning the object to the exhibition organizers excluding any type of deception.

This consequence brings serious responsibility to the rightholder. Any deception from his side carried out in order to falsify real qualitative characteristics of the object (make them look better than they actually are) and relevant misrepresentation of the expert community will be qualified as the deliberate fraud and fall under jurisdiction of law enforcement authorities of the United Kingdom.

Apart from the possibility of bringing the unfair exhibition participant to legal account, distribution of information regarding his illegal actions will prejudice his business reputation.

B. Exclusion of latency of delinquencies and absence of reasons to commit them

The exhibition organizers recommend all persons concerned to avoid deception in the process of preparation and submission of the necessary information regarding the object. Such recommendation is connected with the fact that key parameters of assessment of the object, their main characteristics, as well as photographs are presented on operational and title documents of the exhibition. Besides, all information regarding objects submitted by participants is archived on the IUCI website and is always available for everyone. Therefore in case if actual (physical) characteristics of the object will significantly differ from characteristics presented during the exhibition, such information will inevitably become available to the expert community and competent authorities as soon as relevant documents of the exhibition are juridically used for the first time.

In this regard any excellent mark at the exhibition achieved by the person through deception may stay hidden and unpunished for certain period of time until results of the exhibition and relevant documents are promulgated or used in any other official way.

C. Cancellation (correction) of the exhibition results being the consequence of deception from the side of its participants or any other illegal acts of persons concerned

Results of the exhibition based on the deception from the side of its participants or other illegal actions of persons concerned are subject to absolute cancellation or correction in favor of fair exhibition participants (if such violations are proven).

D. The letter of protest against the exhibition results

Any person concerned possessing the qualification required for professional assessment of qualitative features of relevant objects has the right to address the IUCI with the motivated note (letter of protest) objecting the exhibition results in case if participants of the exhibition achieve certain results due to influence on the expert community or misrepresentation.

E. Qualification and cancellation of virtual achievements at the exhibition

In case if exhibition participants have achieved certain results due to their influence on the expert community or misrepresentation concerning qualitative characteristics of the object, such results are considered to be characterizing the virtual - physically non-existing object.

The object illegally characterized by overstated, actually not existing qualities, that has achieved certain competitive results on the basis of deception of the expert community, is considered to be taken off from the exhibition.

Virtual competitive achievements at the exhibition are subject to absolute cancellation. They are considered to be cancelled from the moment of their official announcement.

V. Assessment

27. The procedure of assessment of exhibits has the following structure:

1) General expert assessment of the object (certification confirmation or rejection of such confirmation) and the recommended level of the certification-based assessment (5-grade system determining the number of "quality stars" assigned) are carried out during 20 days from the day of presentation of the exhibit by qualified sectoral specialists from around the world invited by the IUCI and forming the Professional Expert Council (PEC). Every expert of the PEC gives his own mark to the exhibit within the field of expert responsibility of the PEC. Final mark of the PEC in relation to the exhibit is determined as the arithmetic average index of the total sum of marks given by members of the PEC without rounding to the integer. It's obvious that low marks - unsatisfactory (1,2 points) require the justified explanation from the expert. Attestation authorities of the PEC members are based on the delegation of relevant rights by the IUCI, as well as presumption of their fairness and professionalism.

PEC members are personally responsible to the IUCI for the quality and objectivity of their expert activities. 3 to 7 highly qualified professional specialists from around the world are invited to form the PEC. The number of PECs formed upon the initiative of the IUCI within the framework of the exhibition corresponds to the number of branches with at least 1 nomination opened by exhibitors. During the official period of the exhibition the IUCI establishes the regime of confidentiality of information about lists of members of sectoral PECs.

2) Final level of the certification mark is determined at the open expertise. All sectoral specialists with the permission of the IUCI can take part in it. General negative mark of the open expertise lowers the recommendatory level of the certification mark of the Professional Expert Council by 1 point. The positive mark confirms it. General positive mark - 2/3 of the general number of votes increases it by 1 credit or (in case if the Professional Expert Council has given the highest mark) adds the "Crown of Quality" to the mark given. The open expertise continues during a calendar year the exhibition is carried out in. Attestation authorities of participants of the open expert community are based on presumption of their fairness and professionalism.

28. Assessment results.
