The Institute of Corrosion and Correx have embarked on a route to obtain Certification to ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management Systems. LRQA has been engaged to carry out this certification and the process is well in hand. The Quality system Manuals for ICorr and Correx have been completed and the Quality Policies are now published on the websites.

One of the reasons for obtaining certification is that Highways England will require it for the ICATS Scheme and it will also enhance the credibility of the institute.

Please download the Quality Policies and make yourselves familiar with the areas covered as part of your CPD QA training.

It is hoped that the process will be completed by mid-2017 but we will keep you informed of progress.

If any member have any questions or comments please send them to
