Out of the pandemic with the awareness of the value of being certified
Italy is among the countries with the most certified SMEs.

The high number of Management Systems certificates shows, also in Italy, the primacy of ISO 9001 Quality certification, which typically becomes a starting point for organizations towards more specific certifications. With regard to Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001), Italy is in second position, after China, as well as in the number of management system certifications for the health and safety of workers (ISO 45001), just before the United Kingdom and India.

The Italian industry boasts a strong presence of small and medium-sized enterprises, where an high integration into international value chains and competitiveness based on the quality of the product or service offered justify the increase number of certification requests. Factory quality is a plus that can streamline and make production processes more efficient, facilitate penetration into international markets and guarantee quality and consumer control of Italian products.

Analyzing specifically the certifications of Quality Management Systems it is significant to note that Italy has twice as many certificates as Germany and more than four times as many as France.

In Italy, the mandatory requirement to have a quality management system certified by an accredited body to participate in public tenders in the construction sector, has certainly conditioned the spread of this tool over the years.
