Wikipedia has an illuminating entry on ISO 9000:

Among other things, it states that Toyota abandoned ISO 9000
certification a few years ago, returning to their own Toyota
Production Standard. Last I heard, not being ISO certified any more
has not hurt either their quality or reputation.

I should say, however, that the latest incarnations have incorporated
process improvement procedures.
