The ISO Survey of Certifications 2009

The principal highlights of The ISO Survey of Certifications – 2009 are that ISO 9001, the global benchmark for quality management, has topped one million certifications, and that certifications to ISO 22000:2005 for food safety management systems, and to ISO/IEC 27001:2005 for information security management systems have rocketed.

ISO comments in the introduction to the survey that the 8 % increase in ISO 9001 certificates, compared with the 3 % increase in 2008, “confirms the importance of ISO 9001 in the global supply chains and as the pioneering model on which subsequent management system standards have been built and flourish”.

Safe food supply chains are a global priority. ISO 22000:2005 certifications reached at least 13 881 certificates in 127 countries and economies – a rise of 69 %.

The increasing importance organizations give to information security was demonstrated by the 40 % increase in ISO/IEC 27001 certifications which reached 12 934 in 117 countries.

ISO/IEC 27001:2005
ISO/IEC 27001:2005 gives the requirements for information security management systems. At the end of 2009, at least 12 934 ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certificates had been issued in 117 countries and economies. The 2009 total represents an increase of 3 688 (+ 40 %) over 2008 when the total was 9 246 in 82 countries and economies.
