The broad range of possible corrosion test methods, the general lack of coordination of corrosion test programmes and incomplete reporting of corrosion results in the past has led to poor test reproducibility and difficulties in using the data in materials databases. The current emphasis on the development of standards appropriate to corrosion testing is directed at three areas: (i) damage assessment methods; (ii) analysis and presentation of results; (iii) codes of practice for performance of tests. These represent a core of modular standards to which more specific test methods can be related.
