National Corrosion Council of India organizes National Congress on Corrosion Control once in two year, covering all aspects of Corrosion Science & Engineering at important venue, for enlightening and increasing the awareness about corrosion of metals and the appropriate remedial measures to control it.

There has been overwhelming response from various sectors for the previous eighteen congresses, held at different places in the country. The interaction among the technical personnel and scientists during the congress prompted a good number of industrial establishments and public sector undertakings to establish the in-house R&D units for solving the relevant corrosion problems.
