IAF survey on aggregate transition rate of accredited certificates to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
2018. 02. 13.

In January 2018, IAF Accreditation Body members collected data from their accredited certification bodies who held accreditations to ISO 9001 and/or ISO 14001. The data collected was to give an aggregate transition rate across the world for these two key standards to 31 December 2017.

Submissions were received from the vast majority of IAF ABs and gave transition rates from a total of over 1 million ISO 9001 and 350,000 ISO 14001 accredited certificates.

The rates were 36.94% for ISO 9001 and 39.73% for ISO 14001.

Due to the fact that the three-year transition period for ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 14001: 2015 standard versions will end in September 2018, these two ratios clearly show that additional awareness-raising steps are needed to raise the transition rate.
