The History of IMPACT PLUS

In 2015, the NACE International Institute (NII) conduced a global study that illuminated the necessity of companies to maintain a corrosion management plan. “Soon after we released the NII IMPACT Study, we began to hear from respondents and focus group participants that they needed tools to put the report’s findings into practice,” said Elaine Bowman, NACE Past President and IMPACT PLUS Project Manager. IMPACT PLUS is that next step — a tool to help companies address this critical business element, improve safety, and reduce the exorbitant cost of corrosion.

A corrosion management product, IMPACT PLUS is the world’s first platform to benchmark practices and improve corrosion management. This one-of-a-kind, online network of tools is designed to advance corrosion management performance across all industry sectors from pipelines and bridges, to maritime and defense systems, and beyond.

"The NACE International IMPACT PLUS assessment process presents a unique opportunity for an organization to not only benchmark their current corrosion management strategy, but also develop a comprehensive roadmap to their desired state of a corrosion management system. CorroMetrics' Qualified IMPACT PLUS Navigators provide the guidance throughout the process, empowering that organization to achieve its corrosion management aspirations. The bottom line is improving asset integrity management"

- D. Terry Greenfield, Principal Consultant, CorroMetrics Services, Inc.
