ISO grows as the world changes

Accreditations are a fantastic way to show competitors and customers alike that your business is not only thriving but doing so responsibly and compliance with various sets of rules and regulations.

But as the world changes, does the accreditation grow with it? For example, we live in a digital age, a different business world to that which companies and organisations inhabited a decade ago. Threats have changed. There is now real concern daily about online security breaches.

Effectively, it can always feel like we are catching up and always one step behind. But the International Standard Organization has always attempted to stay one step ahead, looking at where changes and growth happen, adapting, evolving and changing so that its standards mould and fit the current marketplace.

An independent analysis project has confirmed in its finding ISO Certification Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012-2016) and Forecast (2017-2025) that it is in an excellent position to the face the trends, developments, restraints and challenges that ISO certificates have and will face in the coming years.

A global market

ISOs are not just used in the British domestic marketplace but in sectors and industries across the globe. This is a comprehensive report, analysing each and every segment of the ISO certification market. This is the only way, say the company behind the project, Persistence Market Research, to get an accurate and useful overall picture of the current state of ISOs and where they need to be in the future.

A global driver: Safety

The report acknowledges that the changes in technologies in recent years has impacted on the market in many ways, including the production of sub-standard products. Due to various campaigns, consumers are increasingly aware of safety considerations and as such, the demand from businesses and other organisations for some ISOs have been high. By showing customers that they reach certain sets of standards, customers are willing to buy their products and services, knowing they are safe.

A global driver: Environmental concerns

There is a growing concern about how the environment is being continually impacted by our activities. Businesses are at the leading edge of making changes and again, the ISOs relating to environmental management have proved beneficial for those businesses who want to show the world they meet various regulations, including governmental regulations. Better customer relations are also key, as is increasing investor and stakeholder confidence and creating a positive public image, all tied up in ISO 14001: 2015.


But ISOs need to change in a way that retains their value whilst increasing their accessibility and popularity. The report noted that for some businesses, the amount of time and documentation needs can be a hindrance, posing challenges that may be difficult for them to overcome.

Perhaps the affordable services of consultancies such as Synergos are the answer to the restraint identified in the report. It noted, however, that despite these challenges for companies and businesses that did grab the ISO needed, the marketplace opens to their business and immediately flourished.

ISOs fuel business and market growth. Isn’t it time your business is part of it?

Completed my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in 2012 I was looking to start my own business. With over 10 years improving and streamlining business systems, I grasped an opportunity to assist a local business to improve their quality and communication processes by researching the requirements of a quality management system based upon ISO 9001 and conducted my first internal audit that resulted in 97 improvement recommendations. After a successful outcome, I was recommended again and again with glowing reviews and in February 2014, Synergos Consultancy was born. I now have the role of regularly reviewing and planning the strategic direction of the business to ensure that Synergos continues to develop, whilst at the same time, still actively working closely with some of our clients. In my spare time I love to attend the theatre to watch musicals, dance productions and plays. In 2019, I attended the theatre a whopping 24 times. I follow a plant-based diet which I absolutely love. A keen tick-tock follower, I have picked up a lot of interesting recipes. A firm favourite is Brussel sprouts and sriracha sauce baked in the oven. Delicious!
