IIW/EWF Certification for the Quality in Welding of Manufacturers according to ISO3834

Benefits of Manufacturers certification

  • Advantages for the Manufacturers in getting a certification against the IIW/EWF MCS, can be summarised as follows:
    - welded products are differently treated according to the specific needs of the welding manufacture process used;
    - manufacturers can be guided to satisfy regional or international product standards’ requirements through implementation of the Scheme;
    - the specific areas of competence (for personnel and companies) are explicitly encompassed and registered in the Schedule;
    - manufacturers can get visibility through the Register (www.iiw-iis.org) of Certified Companies.

    It must be borne in mind that, although it has many advantages, certification is voluntary and does not, in itself, meet any statutory requirements
    .


    Benefits of certification for customers

    Customers should use ISO 3834 certification as contractual requirement why it is furnishing:
  • an independant assessment of manufacturers is conducted by experts
