The National Qualifications Register was first published in 1994; since then it has been revised and renewed on a continuous basis. A major change took place in 2007 when the modular, competence-based NQR was developed and introduced. In 2012 a comprehensive review of the NQR took place including the renewal of all related documents (such as vocational and examination requirements, vocational requirement modules, framework curricula, see below) and resulted in important changes and innovations. The main aim of the changes was to eliminate the overlaps and professional/content-related duplication (parallelism) among the qualifications. The previous modular principle and the competence-based approach have been kept, vocational (basic/primary) qualifications, partial qualifications and specialisations were retained, but the total number of qualifications has been decreased by about half. VET qualifications pursued in higher education have been excluded from the NQR, since 2013 such type of training may only be launched within higher education. In addition, the OKJ of 2012 defines a minimum number of teaching hours for each qualification in adult training. The development of the new NQR was coordinated by the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HCCI, Hungarian name and abbreviation Magyar Kereskedelmi és Iparkamara, MKIK). In the latest piece of legislation – Government Decree on NQR of March 4th, 2016 – the VET qualifications are linked to the correct level of the HuQF.
