The article focuses on the main problems of methodology of the measurement quality evaluation in the context of introduction into metrological practice of the International Dictionary of Metrology VIM 3. The generalized definition of the notion of measurement quality is given. A separate analysis of measurement quality indexes as a process and quality indexes of measurement result as a product of this process is carried out. The analysis and systematization of the functional quality indexes and quality indexes of the efficiency of the measurement process and the measurement result are performed. The recommendations for the development of the measurement quality methodology evaluation as one of the tasks of ensuring the uniformity of measurement are work out.
