What does it mean to be an ISO 3834 Certified Company?

The ISO 3834 certification specifies the global quality requirements for fusion welded products. It confirms the technical knowledge of all certified personnel and controls the entire lifecycle of the welding process, from design to inspection - what is referred to as a factory production system.


ISO 3834 certified companies deliver reduced risk for their clients, with a demonstrable ability to produce compliantly welded steel products efficiently, with minimal waste, delivered on time and on budget.

Certified Competence

Master Steel has a currency of certification and is subject to annual audits to ensure current performance to the AS/NZS ISO 3834 standard. You get assurance of built-in quality.

Factory Production Control System

AS/NZS ISO 3834 builds factory production control (a documented quality system) into welding management to ensure quality, optimise manufacturing costs, and reduce expensive repairs and rework.

Technical Expertise

Increased technical knowledge for all levels of our personnel involved in the welding process, from trades and inspectors, through to supervisors and management.

Reduced Cost, Minimised Risk

ISO 3834 certified companies deliver significant risk mitigation due to a higher skills level and quality management process. As well this provides a reduction of project costs due to decreased or eliminated rework.
