Within this, Certification and Business Enhancement delivered 7.4% growth, of which 6.2% was organic growth. It is noted that this growth was, ‘mostly driven by Management System Certification having a particularly good semester’.
The transition to the 2015 versions of the world’s leading management system standards, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 has been a driver in this growth, as noted, ‘Management System Certification reported strong growth progressing above seasonal patterns due to additional transition audits related to the ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 standards. Conversion to the new standards progressed well with 75% of customer certificates converted in the first semester, slightly ahead of plan, led by Asia’
