The Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD) is a 4π spectrometer capable of detecting of charged hadrons, electrons and photons in heavy-ion collisions at high luminosity in the energy range of the NICA collider. Among many others one of the crucial tasks necessary for successful operation of such a complex apparatus is providing an adequate monitoring of operational parameters and convenient control of various equipment used in the experiment. In the report presented approaches and basic principles of development of the SlowControl system for the MPD. Tango Control System based approach allows to unify representation and storage of slowcontrol data from many diverse data sources. Presently running BM@N experiment serves as a perfect testbench for the software. Special attention paid to integrity of slowcontrol data and operation stability. Present status and plans of design of slowcontrol system for the MPD is also presented.
