NACE International, The Worldwide Corrosion Authority, serves nearly 36,000+ members in 130 countries and is recognized globally as the premier authority for corrosion control solutions.

NACE International is headquartered in Houston, Texas, with offices in San Diego, California; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Shanghai, China, Sao Paulo, Brazil and Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia.

NACE International was established in 1943 by eleven corrosion engineers from the pipeline industry as the “National Association of Corrosion Engineers.” The founding engineers were originally part of a regional group formed in the 1930s when the study of cathodic protection was introduced. Since then, NACE International has become the global leader in developing corrosion prevention and control standards, certification and education. The members of NACE International still include engineers, as well as numerous other professionals working in a range of areas related to corrosion control.
NACE International East Asia & Pacific Area spans from Pakistan in the west to the far east of Japan, and the north to Mongolia, down to the south encompassing Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. This is NACE International’s fastest growing Areas with approximately 6000 members.
The Area is vibrant with the dedication of our members, coming from the various industries, challenging ourselves and striving to meet the NACE’s mission of “Protecting People, Assets & the Environment from Corrosion”. As today’s worldwide corrosion cost stands more than USD 2.5 trillion, education courses, conferences and seminars are held within the Area as part of our efforts in mitigating and minimizing these through incorporation of modern and the latest technologies as well on-going research in corrosion mitigation and prevention.
