While there is no legal obligation to be certified to AS/NZS ISO 3834, the compliance is starting to be mandated in Australian Standards, such as AS/NZS 5100.6. Plus, ISO 3834 is the minimum benchmark for welding quality globally. As more companies become certified, those without certification will find it harder to win work from local and international suppliers.
For many modern Australian manufacturing businesses, most of the AS/NZS ISO 3834 requirements will already be in place, without the business even realising it.
So, before starting the certification process, a few hints that you may want to consider:
- Tip 1: Define your objectives: why do you want to implement AS/NZS ISO 3834?
- Tip 2: Make sure the key stakeholders within your organisation understand the importance of AS/NZS ISO 3834, and are supportive of its implementation.
- Tip 3: Identify your organisation’s processes, procedures, tasks and responsibilities. Pinpoint any possible risks or shortfalls. Make sure you understand your customers’ requirements and can guarantee that these are met every time.
- Tip 4: Undertake an AS/NZS ISO 3834 self-assessment or quick quiz.
- Tip 5: Contact Weld Australia to organise an official assessment.
