NACE International is the world's leading professional organization for the corrosion control industry established in 1943. As of January, 2014, there are over 33,317 NACE members in over 100 countries. NACE International is involved in every industry and area of corrosion prevention and control, from chemical processing and water systems, to transportation and infrastructure protection. 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 now holds certifications and training packages for members in the industry. You can obtain this certification through course work and exams, work experience ( 5 years required to apply ), or an education level achieved through an accredited university.[1] You can find a full list of 33 certifications on the NACE Institute Website.[2]

Awards Sponsored[edit]

  • 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.
