NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 has now been out in its entirety since December 2003. What have we, the global materials and corrosion community that uses this standard, learned from the use of it over the last almost 15 years? What have been some of the biggest problems that we have had to face? What are our biggest achievements? What are the recent changes to the standard and what remains to be done? These questions are answered in this paper.
This standard is now undergoing a critical review to determine how it should change to meet the future needs of the Oil & Gas Industry better. Where are we headed with NACE MR0175/ISO 15156? The results of our collective initial efforts are presented.
