In Sweden, the annual wastage due to corrosion is estimated at 200 million Kronor (approximately £14 million). The economic importance of this loss was recognised at an early stage, and in 1933 the Swedish Academy of Engineering Science set up a special Anti‐Corrosion Committee concerned with the study of corrosion protection through paints, metal coatings and oiling. The work of this committee provided the background for the Swedish contributions (reported in CORROSION TECHNOLOGY of July 1954) to the Scandinavian Corrosion Conference, held in Copenhagen in May 1954. In view of the general importance of the subject of corrosion, the Swedish journal, Teknisk Tidskrift has now devoted an entire issue (No. 44, 1954) to it. As the ground is much the same as that covered by the contributions to the conference already reported in these columns, only a brief summary of the latest contributions is here given.
