This new standard on corrosion prevention and control (CPC) planning is intended to support future CPC improvements to national acquisition and sustainment of equipment, systems, facilities, and infrastructure at an acceptable cost. It provides a standardized framework for a supplier’s plan to control corrosion of supplied products and structures. The standard is intended for use by public and private facility owners/acquisition agencies that require their suppliers to provide corrosion prevention and control procedures as a deliverable provided with the purchased product, installation, or system. The standard includes:
• Attributes of the supplied product, system or facility that require planning for CPC;
• Considerations for material selection and design of a product, system or facility to minimize corrosion;
• Items or topics that should be addressed in a CPC plan;
• Items or topics that should be addressed in CPC planning which affect CPC in design, fabrication and construction, operation and use, and maintenance and sustainability.
Key words: Corrosion prevention and control, CPC, planning, design, material selection, JTG 527
