Corrosion represents a significant cost to industrial operations and infrastructures, which, if properly understood and mitigated could result into substantial savings. The direct cost of corrosion in the US was estimated at $1 trillion in 2013 and is expected to reach $2.5 trillion worldwide in 2016. These figures do not include the indirect cost of corrosion such as plant shutdowns, contamination of products, safety, health and environmental considerations.

Cognizant that the impact of corrosion is not given serious and due consideration in local industry and government, UP NEC is embarking on a Corrosion Certification Program. This Certification Program is a serious step towards the recognition and enhancement of knowledge and skills of corrosion practitioners in the country, as well as standardization of key competencies in this area.
