“The purpose of the Institute1 is to operate broadly for the benefit, protection, and preservation of the corrosion engineering and science industry,” Chris Fowler, president of the NACE International Institute, explained. “This is a unique opportunity to build the profile of the industry and its workforce and also build the job market for corrosion control professionals.”

In mid-2013 NACE certification programs will move to the new NACE Institute website at www.naceinstitute.org and will maintain the same functionality currently available online at www.nace.org, including certification application and renewal, and a tool to search for certification holders worldwide.

The complete press release is available online.


  1. The NACE International Institute was formed in 2012 to maintain NACE compliance with existing and recently changed U.S. tax laws for not-for-profit organizations that have certification programs. The development of the Institute will also lead NACE’s certification programs toward compliance with the ISO standard for certification bodies (ISO17024).
