ISO 12944

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has now published the revised ISO 12944 standard. We are here to help our customers prepare for these revisions and answer any questions you may have.

ISO 12944 is one of the main international standards for corrosion protection of steel by paint. The revision will impact all existing parts of the standard and include a new addition – Part 9 – dedicated solely to offshore structures.


Stay updated

The revised ISO 12944 standard is already being applied across our business, from research & development through to technical service and marketing communication, and we are prepared to support our customers.

Please view our dedicated webinar for more information on the revisions of ISO 12944 and our FAQ, available to download here.

For any queries or further information please visit our ISO 12944 webpage. If you would like to talk to us about how we work with ISO 12944 and how it might affect you, please contact your local Hempel sales representative.
