SO 3834 certificate – benefits and implementation
ISO 3834 certificate for a production company using welding techniques is now a must and a “hallmark”, allowing us to treat the company as a reliable and trusted partner. The implementation of ISO 3834 is one of the most important tasks for an consulting and implementation company, but also the most recognizable quality certificate in welding.
What does ISO 3834 cover?
Generally speaking - ISO 3834 is a comprehensive set of guidelines related to welding of metal elements. Unlike e.g. the PED Pressure Directive 2014/68 / EU, the recommendations contained in this certificate relate strictly to welding. It should be remembered that the ISO 3834 standard is designed to adapt the group of requirements for a welding company depending on the role of the welding product in terms of the overall safety and quality of the manufactured structure. The greater the role of the welding product, the greater the level of requirements for ISO 3834 certification must be met.
What is the implementation of ISO 3834?
Like all areas related to certification for welding, the implementation of ISO 3834 must be carried out by a qualified welding engineer. As part of the implementation process, welding supervision and consulting services are provided, including the organization of the workplace and employee training as well as the production planning stage. A certified company should demonstrate that it is able to fully control production and its organization and avoid errors. After meeting all formal and practical requirements, ISO 3834 certificate is awarded, and the company receives confirmation of important technical and organizational competences. Having a certificate is not only a form of security in case of control, but above all is a clear signal of credibility and reliability for contractors.
