ISO Survey

Every year we perform a survey of certifications to our management system standards. The survey shows the number of certificates to ISO management standards (such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001) given in each country, each year.

ISO does not perform certification. Organizations looking to get certified to an ISO standard must contact an independent certification body. The ISO Survey counts the number of certificates issued by certification bodies that have been accredited by members of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

The 2012 results reveal healthy growth across the board for all certifications to ISO management systems, with all seven standards included in the survey showing an increase compared to 2011. Of particular note is a significant jump for ISO 22000 for food safety management (up 20 % on 2011) and ISO 50001 for energy management (up 332 % on 2011). Certificates to the quality management, information technology and medical devices standards have also progressed.
