According to the results of the survey, a total of 1 519 952 valid certificates were reported worldwide in 2015 across nine management system standards, compared to 1 476 504 the previous year – an increase of 3 %.
This year, the results include a new addition to the survey, ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011, Information technology – Service management – Part 1: Service management system requirements, which was added after recommendation by international accreditation and certification experts we consult annually.
The ISO Survey is an annual survey of valid certifications to our management system standards issued by accredited certification bodies worldwide. It is the most comprehensive overview of certifications to these standards currently available. ISO does not perform certification, therefore these results rely on the responses of some of the world’s largest certification bodies.
