Every year we perform a survey of certifications to our management system standards. The survey shows the number of valid certificates to ISO management standards (such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001) reported for 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).

ISO Survey 2021

The latest results of the Survey are for 2021 which show an estimation of the number of valid certificates as of 31 December 2021. The scope of the 2021 Survey expanded from the previous edition to include 4 additional standards, bringing it to a total of 16 ISO management system standards included.

The ISO Survey results contain three sets of data:

  • the number of valid certificates for each country for the 16 ISO management system standards,
  • the number of sites covered by the certificates for each country for 12 ISO management system standards,
  • the number of sectors per country covered by the certificates for 13 ISO management system standards (ISO 22000, ISO 29001 and ISO 13485 do not contain data on sectors).

The full Survey data is available in Excel format.

For an overview of the results we invite you to read the explanatory note.
