About standards

AMPP corrosion and coatings standards respond to the standardization needs of industries, ensuring a focus on the impact of emerging technologies, new materials and capabilities, and changing regulatory requirements.

Our Standards Committees (SCs) provide industry professionals, both members and non-members alike, with a platform for sharing their subject matter expertise, expanding and enhancing their professional footprint, and making an indelible impact on technology and industry. AMPP SCs are responsible for the generation, publishing, and maintenance of all AMPP products that require a consensus-driven process, including standards, technical reports, guides, and qualification procedures covering all aspects of surface preparation, protective coatings application, quality assurance, and corrosion prevention and control worldwide.

AMPP Standards Committees*

AMPP SCs are comprised of a diverse body of international SMEs who participate as Observers or Voting Members. Either role provides substantial benefits with varying degrees of engagement and responsibility, furthering the development of consensus standards that are used worldwide.

Standards news

Publication of ANSI/NACE MR0175-2021/ISO 15156:2020, "Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries-Materials for Use in H2S-Containing Environments in Oil and Gas Production".

AMPP is pleased to announce that ANSI/NACE MR0175-2021/ISO 15156-2020, "Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries-Materials for Use in H2S-Containing Environments in Oil and Gas Production," is published and is now available in the AMPP Store.  Unlike previous versions of MR0175, the three parts of the standard are combined into one PDF file for easier searchability. The most recent Technical Circulars for ISO 15156:2020 are also available in a package with the standard, or they may be purchased separately.

Recently published documents

AMPP SCs are responsible for the generation, publishing, and maintenance of all AMPP products that require a consensus-driven process, including standards, technical reports, guides, and qualification procedures dealing with materials selection and their protection against corrosion.

Realizing that industry and government agency documents frequently invoke standards by reference, AMPP has no intention to modify the unique, original/legacy identifiers of published NACE and SSPC standards. All published NACE and SSPC standards will retain their current alpha numeric designation. When an SSPC or NACE document is revised, its date of publication will be updated, but its designation will not change. The document will have a new format containing an AMPP logo and copyright but will retain the legacy numbering system. New standards will utilize an AMPP designation.
