Mission / Objectives


The objectives of the Working Party can be defined as follows:

  • to provide engineers, designers and materials specialists with information related to the use of materials in the marine environment;
  • to act as or to create a platform for discussion by authorities from industry and academic institutions on materials aspects of marine corrosion;
  • to identify and to define areas in which information is not up-to-date or not available in the required form;
  • to identify areas in which research and development is required;
  • to establish and maintain contacts with other workers in the same area and either co-operate with them or avoid duplication of activities.

In order to meet the objectives of the Working Party the following working methods have been decided to be used in the Working Party.

  • Organize and participate in Workshops, Seminars and Conferences
  • Prepare guidelines on all aspects of marine corrosion
  • To either carry out research or simulate others to do so in areas where a lack of scientific knowledge has been shown to exist.
