The ISO 3834 standard sets the quality requirements for the factory and determines the quality assurance principles of the welded products. The goal of ISO 3834 is to help contracting parties define requirements in the field of welding.

ISO 3834 can bridge these gaps and boost the fabrication company's ability to sell its products in both domestic and overseas markets.
