Compliance: ISO 9001
ISO 3834 deals with quality requirements in welding and has been prepared in order to identify the necessary controls and procedures. ISO 3834 is not a quality system standard intended to take the place of ISO 9001, but a useful, additional tool for use when ISO 9001 is applied by manufacturers.
It provides a method to demonstrate the capability of a manufacturer or fabricator to meet quality requirements of a specification, a product standard, or a regulatory requirement and global recognition and assurance of welding competence.
ISO 3834 contains three levels of requirements:
1. ISO 3834-2 Comprehensive Quality Requirements
2. ISO 3834-3 Standard Quality Requirements
3. ISO 3834-4 Elementary Quality Requirements
- Provides an authoritative, third-party confirmation of welding capability and staff competence.
