AS/NZS ISO 3834 specifies the production control requirements expected for fusion welded products globally, whether fabricated on-site or in a workshop. It is the internationally recognised benchmark for welding quality, and offers both fabricators and purchasing organisations a myriad of benefits.
A factory production control system, AS/NZS ISO 3834 complements—rather than replaces—quality management systems such as ISO 9001. As a factory production control system, certification to AS/NZS ISO 3834 helps businesses operate more efficiently, thereby improving client satisfaction.
Many companies across the world are certified to ISO 9001 for their quality management systems. However, where a special process such as fusion welding is used, ISO 9001 fails to demonstrate the specialist capability required by a company to manufacture products according to the necessary quality standard.
AS/NZS ISO 3834 certification overcomes this shortfall by controlling the entire lifecycle of the welding process, from design right through to inspection. AS/NZS ISO 3834 considers all aspects that could affect weld quality. This type of approach is essential because it is impossible to undertake complete verification of a welded joint without destroying it.
