NACE International, which was established in 1943 is a professional organization for the corrosion control industry. NACE's main focus of activities includes cathodic protection, coatings for industry and material selection for specific chemical resistance.
NACE was formerly known as the National Association of Corrosion Engineers.
NACE publishes the journals Materials Performance (MP) and Corrosion. NACE also publishes standard practice, test method, and material requirements standards for use by industry and other Corrosion societies. Standing committees periodically review and update the standards every five years. An annual conference is held in the United States for the entire organization and several regional meetings and conferences around the world.
NACE provides certifications and training packages for members in the industry, which can be obtained through course work and exams, work experience, or education through an accredited university. A full list of certifications can be found on the NACE Institute Website.
- The Willis Rodney Whitney Award is given annually for significant contributions to corrosion science, such as the development or improvement of a theory that provides a more fundamental understanding of corrosion phenomena and/or the prevention of corrosion.
