    ISO 3834-1:2021 Quality Requirements for Welding of Metallic Materials

    The Quality Requirements for the welding standard is the benchmark for clients who required an organisation that provides welding as a service. The assurance that the ISO 3834-1:2021 standard provides is the different grades of a welder, their competency and adequate controls required to be followed to provide quality welding as per client specifications.

    The standards’ foundation is based around the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, with a focus on the verification, validation, monitoring, and measurement of the Quality Controls for Welding to ensure the quality of service is in accordance with National Welding Standards.

    What is ISO 3834-1:2021?

    ISO 3834-1:2021 Quality Requirements for Welding was developed by International Standard Organisation in association with the International Institute of Welding as International Welding Quality Assurance Standard (ISO 3834-1:2021). It aims to provide the quality requirements for a welded product because quality is a primary need for all customers.

    • It specifies requirements relating only to the quality of the welded product
    • It encourages a proactive process orientated approach to managing and controlling welding product quality in a workshop or on site
    • It is also a Factory Control System to control activities for the manufacture of the product
    • It was developed to identify all factors that could affect the quality of welded product and which need to be controlled at all stages, before, during and after welding.

    The standard ISO 3834-1:2021 sets out requirements for manufacturers to meet, in order to apply good practice to their welding operations.

    This standard was created by the welding professionals to encourage a proactive process orientated approach to manage and control welding product quality in a workshop or at site.
    This standard allows organisations to not only inspect the quality in a product but to also built quality in the product.

    Why does an Organisation need ISO 3834-1:2021?

    This standard will assist organisations with:
    Ensuring that they have competent welders by having written welding instructions also known as WPS;

    Confidence that their welding procedure specification will produce a welded component with properties that satisfy the design requirements;
    Quality policy that shape behaviour and establish the core values in an organisation;
    Consistency on products, with high quality level;

    Taking all welding quality affecting aspects into consideration;
    Making sure the welding shop has competent welders and that there are standardised ways to test the welders.

    Ensuring that the welding process and procedure is correctly formulated and approved.

    What are the Benefits of Implementing ISO 3834-1:2021?

    Standards can be used to streamline the internal processes of a organisation, e.g reducing the time needed to perform specific activities in various business functions, decreasing waste, reducing procurement costs and increasing productivity.
