NACE International, which was established in 1943 is a corrosion control industry with headquarters in Houston, TX. NACE's main focus of activities includes cathodic protection, coatings for industry, inspection, corrosion testing, 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 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.[1] A full list of certifications can be found on the NACE Institute Website.[2]

NACE Corrosion Standards and Material Requirements

NACE publishes a variety of corrosion testing standards for many different applications, including TM-01-69 for immersion corrosion and TM-02-84 for hydrogen-induced cracking. A complete list is available by pdf on the NACE website. The NACE Materials Requirements include the widely used MR0175, which is focused on corrosion resistant materials for oil and gas applications, and MR0103 for Sulfide Stress Cracking in Corrosive Environments.
