At the end of 2014, the International Standards Organisation (ISO) released a survey outlining the growth in the uptake of ISO Standards.
The figures released by the ISO late last year showed a 4% increase in the uptake of ISO Standards globally, with a total of 1,564,448 certificates issued in 2013.
We have previously blogged about the Irish and UK growth separately and have compared them in an infographic which are available here:

In this piece we will look more closely at the French and German uptake of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and ISO 27001.
