Abstract Scope MIC is a rapid and localized form of corrosion initiated or accelerated by microorganisms and can affect a wide diversity of industry. Proper MIC diagnosis is a process of collecting appropriate scientific and practical knowledge from different expertise areas requiring a case by case approach. This presentation discusses several challenges related to corrosion in fire protection systems (FPS), in particular, the diagnosis and presence of MIC. Case studies are presented to demonstrate that MIC can be a problem in FPS but it is not necessarily the main reason for corrosion. It needs not only to be proven that microorganisms are present on the object or in the environment but also that they are active at the damaged part of a structure. It needs to be answered if the observed damage pattern is related to microbial activity or if it is the contribution of other corrosion mechanisms present in the system.
