Founded in 1956, CEOCOR became an international scientific non-profit association in 1981. Most of the European countries are members of CEOCOR which brings together hundreds of specialists from:

  • universities and research centres
  • water, gas and oil distribution and transportation companies
  • waste water companies
  • pipe producers and manufacturers of coatings and equipment for cathodic protection systems

The international exchange of experiences and technical know-how ensure the objectivity and the independence of CEOCOR activities.



  • Provide the basis for scientific and technical guidance in the field of corrosion by studies, recommendations and publications
  • contribute to the formulation of European standards


  • topics examined by specialists in working groups
  • plenary meetings, twice a year, of the sectors and management bodies
  • annual congress hosted by one of the member countries



CEOCOR is structured into 2 commissions whose aims are :

Commission 1 deals with the interaction between transported or stored water and metallic or cement based materials. Such interaction may lead to the deterioration of the materials themselves and/or deterioration in the quality of the transported water.
The field of activities of Commission 1 covers the materials used in this environment, their corrosion behavior, corrosion mechanisms and their Corrosion behavior in the field, choice of materials and “non-electrical” protective measures.

 Commission 2 deals with external corrosion and cathodic protection against corrosion, mainly for water, oil and gas pipelines and relevant infrastructures; AC and DC stray currents and electrical interferences are in the field of competences of this Commission.
The field of activities of Commission 2 covers, among others, current influenced corrosion, cathodic protection, stray currents, AC-Corrosion
