NACE - Great Britain Section

Corrosion is the deterioration of a material that results from a reaction with its environment

The NACE UK Section was originally established in 1991 to bring the various services of NACE to the UK community. Over the past 26 years the section has provided local services to the members via conferences; Evening Technical meetings (often jointly with other bodies such as the IMAREST; the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology), and seminars. In addition, there was an emphasis to bring the certification and professional development programmes of NACE to the UK and the Section focused on running the Basic Corrosion Course (since 1993) as well as the Corrosion Control in the Refining Industry courses. The Design for Corrosion Control course was first run in the UK in the mid-90s. Cathodic protection courses CP 3 and CP 4 are now both held in UK.

The section was renamed NACE International - Great Britain United Kingdom Section in 2008. Joint seminars with the Institute of Corrosion were initiated and sponsored by the Section in both London and Aberdeen. Our website is our forum for bringing you news of our activities and other courses that are provided on behalf of NACE International and by other organizations.
