The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators which aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations, and to demonstrate which operators are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.
The purpose of the Bronze audit is to make sure that the operators we accredit meet specific exacting standards. The audit process is about providing evidence of systems, procedures and documentation that demonstrate your company can meet the required standard of entry into FORS Bronze accreditation. To ensure that you are maintaining the FORS standard, on-site re-approval audits are conducted annually for Bronze.
Bronze accreditation confirms that you employ good practice and comply with the requirements laid out by the FORS Standard. This includes demonstrating dedication to driver and vehicle safety, combined with improving operating practices through effective monitoring of fuel and tyre usage.
FORS is aligned to a number of other schemes. At Bronze level operators will be ready to meet the requirements of the Safer Lorry Scheme. This mandates basic safety equipment (side under-run protection and safety mirrors) on all commercial vehicles over 3.5t. We are currently in the process of achieving bronze level accreditation.
