 IIW Manufacturers Certification System

The International System for the Manufacturers Certification is aimed to comply with the ISO 3834, based on the European System, existing for almost 10 years .

ISO 3834 can boost the manufacturing company’s ability to sell its products in both domestic and overseas markets. Compliance with ISO 3834 provides a “one-stop-shop” to achieve global recognition of the company’s capability. Entitled “Quality Requirements for Welding”, the standard provides details of how to control the various welding-related operations to achieve the desired quality consistently. For more information regarding ISO 3834 and its implementation please go to Guidance Documents for ISO 3834.

A key feature of the standard is the requirement to ensure that people with welding responsibilities are competent to discharge those responsibilities. This is achieved by incorporation of another standard: ISO 14731 “Welding Co-ordination – Tasks and responsibilities”.
