CORROSION COORDINATING COMMITTEE PARTICIPATION
Introduction. In order to reduce the adverse effects of
interference from cathodic protection systems in congested areas, corrosion
coordinating committees have been established in almost every area of the
United States and Canada as well as in major industrial or metropolitan areas
in foreign countries.
Functions of Corrosion Coordinating Committees. The purpose of
these committees is to serve as a "clearing house" for information regarding
cathodic protection systems.
Operation of the Committees. Anyone planning, installing, or
modifying cathodic protection systems, underground structures, or potential
sources of stray currents in the area covered is expected to notify the
appropriate corrosion coordinating committee(s). Members of the committees
are representatives of all interested parties in the area. The committees
have no power to enforce procedures or regulations but they are responsible
for establishing notification procedures and they assist in establishing test
programs and maintaining pertinent records in their areas.
Most corrosion coordinating committees,
