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.
