AS/NZS ISO 3834 is a factory production control system, drafted to complement - rather than replace quality management systems such as ISO 9001. As a factory production control system, certification to AS/NZS ISO 3834 helps businesses operate more efficiently, improving client satisfaction. AS/NZS ISO 3834 certification increases the likelihood of global supply chain opportunities and repeat business, bolstering profitability. Certification helps Australian businesses demonstrate their ability to deliver a compliant, quality fusion welded product on time and to budget. AS/NZS ISO 3834 is the minimum benchmark for welding quality globally. As more companies become certified to the standard, those without it will find it harder to win work from local and international suppliers alike.
