Can ISO 27001:2013 be certified against multiple legal entities?

We have multiple companies (different legal entities) and operating from the same location under the single owner. We would like to implement the ISO27001:2013 for all the different legal entities. All entities are under the same line of business.

I would like to know whether we can implement the ISO 27001:2013 for multiple companies under the single scope? So that we can undergo for certification as a single unit?

Let me know if you need more information.

It is possible to have a single certification for multiple companies, provided that the ISMS scope covers elements of all companies (e.g., processes, information, and/or locations). Of course, all entities will have to go through all certification process together.

Adopting a single certificate for all entities or separate ones for each entity is a business decision, depending on their objectives and strategies, but in general, organizations adopt the model of one certification for each entity, because a change in an entity does not impact the certification of other entities.
