LMATS regularly assist fabricators about AS/NZS ISO 3834 certification

Quality System development for AS/NZS ISO 3834, AS/NZS 5131, ACRS, ISO 9001,  ISO 17025, ISO 17020, DIN 2303 Certification

AS/NZS ISO 3834 is a factory production control system to complement quality management systems such as ISO 9001.

ISO 3834 has been aligned considering relevant Australian Standards to be suitable for Australian fabricators.

ISO 3834 provides internationally recognised quality requirements for the welding of metallic materials by fabricators, manufacturers, constructors, and others.

ISO 3834 certification as a minimum requirement for any company wishing to join their global supply chains in the fields of:

  • Defence shipbuilding
  • Defence land systems projects
  • State-owned infrastructure
    • Roads and Maritime Services in New South Wales and VicRoads in Victoria
  • The certification requirements set out by defence industry prime contractors, state-owned infrastructure managers, and design standards have created a  demand for both individual and company welding certification.

EN ISO 3834 deals with quality necessities in welding. ISO 3834 isn't a quality framework standard planned to replace ISO 9001, yet a helpful, extra apparatus for use when ISO 9001 is applied by Fabricator,

EN ISO 3834 is designed for the fusion welding of metallic materials, and its application is autonomous of the product certification. In any case, its standards and a large number of its nitty-gritty prerequisites are moreover applicable for other welding and welding-related procedures. 

AS/NZS ISO 3834 accreditation has the purpose to control the whole lifecycle of the welding process, from design, fabrication directly through to examination. AS/NZS ISO 3834 considers all process`s variables that could influence weld quality. This kind of approach is vital since it is difficult to predict the complete health of a welded joint without destroying it.

One of the points of EN ISO 3834 is to characterize necessities in the field of welding so that contracting gatherings or controllers try not to need to do this themselves. A reference to a specific piece of EN ISO 3834 ought to be adequate to show the capacities of the producer to control welding exercises for the sort of work being finished.

The characteristics of final welded products cannot be assured through examination only, the confidence is only gained by controlling the whole fabrication process. When an organization has implemented the ISO 3834, it is recognized that the quality of welds will meet the requirements of Welding/Fabrication standards.

One size does not fit all!  
Companies are different by their very nature and have many very different requirements. As certification varies between companies its very hard to be too specific on what is required as it can be entirely different from one to another. LMATS can and does on a regular basis design a specific program for individual companies to achieve ISO 3834 certification.

Who can get this certification  - Fabrication and Purchasing companies of any size or manpower but Gradation of ISO 3834 will be different e.g. ISO 3834.2 or 3834.3 respectively.

Why someone needs this certification: 

  1. Customer will feel more confident with your welding process/s,
  2. Easy and effective controls on welding management,
  3. Increase in welding productivity and quality,
  4. The requirement of Road and Maritime Services (RMS) B201, AS 5131, AS5100.6 etc.
  5. Increase in technical knowledge,
  6. Easy to identify process risk and define solutions e.g Less re-work,
  7. Skilled and proficient workforce,
  8. Easy to penetrate in bigger projects.


  • Report formats : 
    • Because this is a complete welding management system so numerous formats are involved.

  • ISO 3834 Gradation 
    • ISO 3834-2, Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials - Part 2: Comprehensive quality requirements
    • ISO 3834-3, Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials - Part 3: Standard quality requirements
    • ISO 3834-4, Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials - Part 4: Elementary quality requirements
