NACE International’s annual conference will feature new insights and interactive events for the protective coatings industry
From a simple coat of paint to highly specialized smart compounds, coatings serve as the front line of protection against the harmful and expensive effects of corrosion.
At this year’s CORROSION conference, the industry’s premier annual event, delegates from all sectors of the industrial paint and coatings industry will get an in-depth look at the latest trends in coating technology, as well as insights from contractors, inspectors, and suppliers.
Experts from the NACE International Institute’s Contractor Accreditation Program (NIICAP) will be on-site to share information and answer questions from contractors looking to grow their business. For those looking to grow their skills in the field of protective coatings, there will be several technical information and networking opportunities at the interactive Protective Coatings Workshop.
Preparing for your Audit: A Technical Discussion on the Contractor Accreditation Program from a Chief NIICAP Auditor
Launched in 2015, the NACE International Institute Contractor Accreditation Program (NIICAP) is an industry-driven and industry-managed accreditation program that verifies a contractor's quality-assurance program, support practices, production processes, and personnel management and training program. At this informal session, NIICAP Chief Auditor T.J. Mead will present a high-level overview of the NIICAP program, answer questions, and discuss real-world case studies of NIICAP-accredited contractors.

NIICAP Forum: Case Studies by Contractors and Asset Owners
This in-depth discussion will go over the NIICAP (NACE International Institute Contractor Accreditation Program) auditing process from different viewpoints – the perspective of a specifier/asset owner, the position of a contractor, and how NIICAP is trying to bridge that gap. Listen to case studies from both sides (asset owners and contractors), learn about the milestones the program has achieved, and what specifiers are seeking, going forward.
