59 MATERIALS PERFORMANCE: VOL. 58, NO. 6 JUNE 2019 CORCON Institute of Corrosion Hosts First IMPACT Plus Navigator Program in India O ne of the main conclusions of NACE International's 2016 IMPACT Study was that reduc- ing the exorbitant cost of corrosion could be realized if companies were to incorpo- rate sound corrosion management prac- tices. While industry believed in the benefits of a corrosion management plan, they found it challenging to communicate this need to those throughout their organi- zations. For asset owners to implement a corrosion management plan, a corrosion management system framework is re- quired that is understood and supported at every level of the organization involved in protecting assets, and even more impor- tantly, the need to justify corrosion con- trol actions by business impact. IMPACT Plus was developed directly in response to these findingsā€”helping companies main- tain and/or improve corrosion manage- ment plans, extend asset life, and reduce the cost of corrosion. The IMPACT Plus program is a unique innovative tool that enables asset owners to validate corrosion control actions by business impact and maintain a successful corrosion management plan. It does this through a robust suite of technical and business tools housed in a single online portal that: 8 Aids in the communication and company-wide understanding of corrosion management activity infor- mation; 8 Helps measure and benchmark current practices; and 8 Assists organizations in monitoring, managing, and ultimately improving their corrosion management activities. 8 It is designed to advance corrosion management performance across all industry sectors. To assist organizations in going through the IMPACT Plus assessment, a trained "Navigator" is required who has a full understanding and knowledge of the IMPACT Plus program. To this end, a Navi- gator training was developed and released An IMPACT Plus Navigator training program was held in New Delhi in February 2019, led by Elaine Bowman (front row, third from left) and Helena Seelinger (front row, fourth from left). in December 2017, and since then several training sessions have been held across the globe. This training provides role-play- ing scenarios, management strategies, and details on how to maximize IMPACT Plus's network of tools to improve the organiza- tion's or customer's business processes and corrosion management performance. In February 2019, the CORCON Insti- tute of Corrosion hosted a four-day IMPACT Navigator training session in New NACE is seeking members to complete a short questionnaire to share their feedback from a customer perspective.
