RUD Chains achieves ISO welding certification 3834

RUD Chains has successfully achieved AS/NZS ISO 3834 Part 2 certification.  ISO 3834 (Quality Requirements for Fusion Welding of Metallic Materials) specifies the quality assurance principles expected specifically for welded products globally. It is an internationally recognised quality standard for welding metallic materials by fabricators, manufacturers, constructors and maintainers. RUD Chains has achieved the highest level, Part 2 (Comprehensive).

Prime contractors involved in Australian defence shipbuilding and land systems projects are increasingly requesting ISO 3834 certification as a minimum for companies wishing to work within their global supply chain. Additionally, this qualification will become the benchmark certification for many future large-scale Australian infrastructure and rail projects.

RUD has seen extensive demand for its in-house engineering and fabrication expertise in the leadup to gaining certification. This has resulted in significant investments in industry leading welding equipment, automated robotic welding and up to 500-tonne load testing capabilities. Additionally, RUD staff have obtained International Welding Engineer and International Welding Inspector qualifications to further develop internal proficiency and maximise value offered to its customers .

A Commitment to Quality Assurance

ISO3834 Quality Requirements for Fusion Welding of Metallic Materials continues RUD’s record of industry excellence, reflected in more than 500 international patents and a rigorous internal testing system that ensures we meet – and exceed – the Defence industry’s stringent standards.

These standards and international quality systems include:

  • AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems
  • AS/NZS ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems
  • AS/NZS 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems
  • ISO-IEC 17025 Standard Applications Document for Accreditation for Testing and Calibration Facilities
  • LEEA Lifting Standards Worldwide
  • NATA – National Association of Testing Authorities Australia

RUD’s Engineering Manager Matt Pauli commented, “Achieving ISO 3834 Certification demonstrates how seriously RUD takes safety and quality across all of our fabricated projects.  This certification assures weld quality to mitigate client risk and increase business productivity.”
