What is UNI EN ISO 3834 certification

The European UNI EN ISO 3834 certification, issued by Accredia, is for those who work with welding.

In short, it understands the standards and ensures the requirements on welding quality for fusion of metallic materials.

That is, it is based on rules found in the:

  • CE Regulation 765/2008;
  • International Standard ISO/EIC 17011.

Therefore, it aims to demonstrate a controlled and reliable welding process.

So the task of this certificate is simple. It wants to assure the customer about the manufacturer’s competence to provide a product whose welding is compliant.

Finally, the certification is valid for three years. If desired, it can be renewed for another three years.
