Corrosion Management

Corrosion doesn’t stop, but a corrosion management program can help to control it. By implementing one, organizations can proactively plan to improve the way critical assets are designed, operated, and maintained thereby reducing the cost of damage control and unexpected failures from corrosion.

A corrosion management program -- sometimes called a Corrosion Management System (CMS) -- is the documented set of processes and procedures required for planning, executing, and continually improving the ability of an organization to manage the threat of corrosion for existing and future assets and asset systems. It typically includes: 1) optimizing corrosion control actions and minimizing lifecycle corrosion costs, and 2) meeting safety and environmental goals.

A CMS is most successful when it is integrated within an organization’s overall management system and tools are provided to create consistent processes and operating procedures so that employees from the top down can respond holistically and effectively when faced with corrosion-related incidents.

A strategy for Corrosion Management coupled with training that incorporates lessons learned, case studies, shared experiences, and best practices provides a foundation to guide companies towards stronger corrosion management practices.

Providing employees across the organization with defined expectations of standard practice for corrosion management, benchmarks for fighting corrosion, can prolong the lifecycle and sustainability of the company’s critical assets.

Standards Development Committees

AMPP SC 10 Asset Integrity Management
Develops and maintains standards, guides, and reports related to the management of the long-term ability of assets to perform their required function effectively and efficiently in the presence of a corrosive environment.

AMPP SC 20 Internal Corrosion Management
Develops and maintains standards, guides, and reports for the detection, prevention, and mitigation of internal corrosion of pipelines, tanks, and vessels. Prevention includes controlling the internal environment and/or chemical treatment.
