The standardization of the corrosion control engineering life cycle, including the terms and definitions, general requirements, and evaluation of the corrosion control engineering life cycle. The engineering life cycle is defined as a system view of the structure to be protected from corrosion that includes the initial design and development based on material selection and protective measures through the construction, inspection, assessment, maintenance, and decommissioning at the end of life of the structure.

Excluded is work in the field of corrosion of metals and alloys including corrosion test methods and corrosion prevention methods and standardization in the field of paints, varnishes, and related products, including raw materials. Specific industry or market segments due to their special requirements are also excluded from the scope
