NACE International was originally known as "The National Association of Corrosion Engineers" when it was established in 1943 by eleven corrosion engineers in the pipeline industry. These founding members were involved in a regional cathodic protection group formed in the 1930s, when the study of cathodic protection was introduced. With more than 60 years of experience in developing corrosion prevention and control standards, NACE International has become the largest organization in the world committed to the study of corrosion. The NACE collection includes standards, recommended practices, test methods, and material requirements for corrosion prevention. These publications cover subjects such as: control of external corrosion on underground metallic piping systems; stainless steel; steel pipelines and piping systems; coatings for underground pipelines; removal of oxygen from water; coal tar epoxy; organic corrosion; resistant floor surfacings; oil bearings formations; design, installation, operation, and maintenance of impressed current deep groundbeds; offshore steel pipelines; sulfide stress cracking at ambient temperatures; sulfide stress cracking resistance metallic material for oil field equipment; and material requirements in prefabricated plastic film for pipeline coatings.
