In accordance with the order of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine dated May 20, 2009 No. 428, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine decree dated August 31, 2011, No. 924 and the order of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine dated November 17, 2012, No. 925, one of the priority areas of the ENIC Ukraine activity is the preparation of documents and implementation of measures on organizational and methodical preparation of documents for the Apostille and verification of the authenticity of educational documents. In addition, according to the information contained in the letter of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine dated September 29, 2017, No. 1/12-6125, to the Department of Consular Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the Center's specialists control the preparation of documents on higher and vocational education for legalization.

While performing these functions, the Center faces numerous cases of incorrect execution of educational documents and keeps receiving numerous inquiries from institutions of higher education regarding the contents and layout of educational documents and supplements to them. Only during 2017 the specialists of the Center processed about 80 thousand documents on higher education, about 40% of documents issued by higher education institutions in 2015-2018 required reissuing. The specialists of the Center process more than 1000 requests from foreign institutions annually and the volume of document circulation is constantly increasing.

Incorrect execution of educational documents by institutions of higher education causes additional financial expenses of higher education institutions and their graduates, provokes conflicts between applicants and specialists of the Center, graduates and representatives of institutions of higher education, leads to complaints to the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, image and reputation losses of institutions of higher education, Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and system of education of Ukraine as a whole.

In this regard, the Center's experts, using considerable experience in practical and analytical work, have developed user-friendly practical recommendations, concerning the contents and execution of higher education documents for specialists of higher education institutions, responsible for the preparation of educational documents.
