Organizer of the Contest is the Information Agency Business-Inform and the Russian Association AQCMS.

The testing works were done by the employees of the Information Agency Business-Inform together with the Russian Association AQCMS and a number of specialized Russian and International laboratories. The evaluation of each print and cartridge is generally done in accordance with ISO/IEC 24790:2017 International standard and the method approved for evaluation of toner cartridge printing quality during OPEN QUALITY PRINTING CONTESTs (altogether 46 parameters).

During the First Stage of the Contest Nominees were chosen: 4 best brands of cartridges (2 newly-built cartridges and 2 remanufactured -cartridges) and 5 types of toner (2 Mitsubishi toners, 2 Tomoegawa toners, 1 toner under the Russian trademark). All nominees received their invitations for participation in the Second Stage of OPEN QUALITY PRINTING CONTEST (2021-03), during which the Contest Winners were to be chosen. The Second Stage of the Contest has been in progress since November 29th till December 14th 2021. During this stage the contest cartridges were tested, those presented for the second stage by the First Stage Nominee companies.

According to the results of the testing done within the framework of the International OPEN QUALITY PRINTING CONTEST (2021-03), the declared Winner is toner for remanufacturing: Mitsubishi UT19B3 (supplier   Delacamp AG, Germany); the Contest Nominees are: toners for remanufacturing: Tomoegawa BR-14, Mitsubishi UT19B2. It is Mitsubishi and Tomoegawa toners that will be presented to the large Russian buyers of office printing devices during the conferences of the Information Agency Business-Inform in Q1 2022 as recommended for Brother cartridge-remanufacturing. Besides, it is the Mitsubishi and Tomoegawa toners (as well as suppliers which submitted them for the Contest) that are chosen by the public specifier-of-the-testing as the ones invited for toner supply bids for Brother cartridge-remanufacturing on the alternative market in the first half of 2022.

According to the results of the best non-OEM Brother TN-3480 cartridge testing (for both remanufactured OEM-cartridges and newly-built cartridges) done within the framework of the International OPEN QUALITY PRINTING CONTEST (2021-03), it was noted that all submitted cartridges provided for making of high quality prints, but none of them reached the declared yield of 8000 pages. That is why, it was decided by the organizers not to declare Winners in the Cartridges nomination. All the suppliers of non-OEM cartridges, who showed the best results during the First Stage testing, are chosen by the public specifier-of-the-testing as the ones invited for non-OEM Brother cartridge supply bids on the alternative market in the first half of 2022.

Also the organizers of the Contest have recommended noting in the public report The Best Solutions in the Field of Office Printing (2022) annually published by the Information Agency Business-Inform that during the procurements of toner on the Russian market several Tomoegawa toners have been discovered produced at various production sites and having different quality. That is why the Contest organizers recommend to invite for toner supply bids for Brother cartridge remanufacturing on the alternative market in the first half of 2022 only the supplier-company of the nominated Tomoegawa toner, since it is the Tomoegawa toner presented by this company that confirmed its high quality during the performed testing.
