The ISO Management Series of Standards
The ISO-based series of management standards define the requirements for the most widely accepted model for management systems and quality assurance in the world. In fact 400 of the United States' 500 largest public corporations (The Fortune 500) have operations registered to one or more ISO-based management systems standards.
ISO boasts over one and a half million ISO 9001 certifications issued in over 170 countries and economies according to ISO's latest Survey of Certifications 2013. With the number of registrations flat lining here in the United States for the last several years they suddenly soared last year when an increase of 8,692 certificates was recorded — the largest since 1999 when an increase of 8,067 was recorded.
