Marketplace Trends:Taking the Pulse of ISO 14001 Registrations
Stewart Anderson reports that, as of March 1, the World Preferred
Registry recorded 1,910 ISO 14001 certificates in North America.
Although lower than registrations for ISO 9001/2/3:1994 and
ISO 9001:2000, growth is increasing at a fairly rapid rate.
Anderson examines the growth and dynamics of ISO 14001 registration
in North America, particularly among organizations that had
prior experience with ISO 9001/2/3 registration. He includes
ISO 14001 registration numbers by country, looks at the top
five industrial categories by registrations in each country,
analyzes the industry data and presents 4 major drivers behind
ISO 14001 registration trends.
