The ISO Survey of Certifications – 2007
November 18, 2008

The ISO Survey of Certifications – 2007 reveals certification activity around one or more of ISO’s management system standards in 175 countries, up from 170 in 2006 – “a clear demonstration”, according to the survey, “ that they have become essential tools of the world economy”.

The survey results continue to shed light on the evolution of the global economy, with newly emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil and the Russian Federation appearing among the leading countries for totals of certificates issued, or growth during 2007. Countries other than the established industrialized economies showing intensive certification activity include Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Thailand and Turkey.

ISO makes available the principal findings of the survey free of charge on the ISO Web site. More information, including industry sector breakdowns, can be found in The ISO Survey of Certifications – 2007, which is a combined brochure and CD costing 48 Swiss francs. It is available from ISO national member institutes and from the ISO Central Secretariat through the ISO Store or by contacting the Marketing & Communication department.
