The last five years have seen a progressive increase in attention paid to the development of standard test methods for a range of properties important in the engineering application of structural materials. For ceramics, the efforts have resulted in a number of physical and mechanical property standards being published in the three major economic areas of the world, Japan, North America and Europe. The first advanced ceramics oxidation standard was published in Japan in 1990. This standard is analysed and the work towards oxidation standards in Europe is described. The situation regarding corrosion of ceramics is similar to that for metals. The initial approach is to develop guidelines for the assessment of corrosion damage, with the manner by which corrosion tests are done covered by codes of practice. Details of the development of corrosion standards are discussed.
