Join a Technical Committee

​Effective March 4, 2019, NACE members have the option of downloading two free NACE standards per year. The exceptions are joint NACE/ISO standards, which NACE has always been required to charge for. Any standards beyond the two free downloads will be charged at regular rates. All revenues generated from purchased standards will be reinvested into the standards program.​

NACE International Advances Standards Development
NACE Technical and Research Activities Committee Chair Cris Conner knows what it takes to produce quality corrosion standards for industry and government.

The Value of Standards
One of the primary driving forces for the formation of NACE in 1943 was the need to develop and share corrosion control technologies and to document them for use in the industry.

The History of NACE International Standards
NACE was established in 1943 by 11 corrosion engineers from the pipeline industry as the "National Association of Corrosion Engineers." Since then, NACE International has become the global leader in developing corrosion prevention and control standards and reports, among many other activities designed to equip society to protect people, assets, and the environment from the adverse effects of corrosion.
