What is FORS?

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a national scheme that promotes good practice for commercial vehicle operators. The accreditation’s main objective is to raise quality and efficiency standards within fleets to the highest levels. FORS focuses on educating and improving best practice procedures in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.

The result is that your company will manage it work-related road risk (WRRR) better. FORS is open to operators of vans, lorries, mini-buses, coaches and other vehicles as well as to the organisations that award contracts to those operators. While voluntary, FORS accreditation makes strong business sense.

As well as demonstrating that your firm meets high standards, you’ll be opening up new opportunities for growth because more and more companies now insist their suppliers and contractors must be FORS accredited in order to be considered for contracts. They want to cover themselves and FORS is your way of helping them to do that. In addition, the fuel efficiency you’ll achieve as a result of your FORS accreditation can lead to significant cost savings as well as being less harmful to the environment.

We help you attain Gold, Silver & Bronze FORS accreditation

As well as making sure your business achieves and maintains its FORS accreditation at Bronze Level, we can also help you achieve the prestigious Silver and Gold FORS status.

The FORS mid-term status audit

It’s not easy to maintain FORS accreditation. At Bronze level, you’ll be reviewing and conducting eyesight checks and driver licence checks at six monthly intervals, as well as reviewing policies and procedures annually. Silver and Gold levels require annual submission of the application as well as an onsite Bronze audit which is extended to every two years instead of every year.
This is because the FORS standard is updated every two years and in order to remain compliant with gold, you’ll need to satisfy the requirements for bronze. It is therefore beneficial to undergo a JCS Transport Consultancy ‘mid-term audit’ to help you prepare and give you added confidence in advance of your formal FORS review.

FORS ACCREDITATION FAQS

FORS accreditation isn’t a straight-forward process for many businesses. Fortunately, we are here to guide you through the entire FORS process. In the meantime, we have answer some common questions we receive from HGV operators.
What is involved in a FORS audit?
The FORS audit seeks evidence of systems, procedures and documentation that shows you’re meeting the FORS requirements. An audit will look at all aspects of your fleet’s safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and operational processes. The first step towards FORS compliance with JCS Transport Consultancy is an initial assessment of your business. We then work with you to create a Transport Management System designed around your specific vehicle fleet and operational needs. The systems and processes we create are robust enough to ensure you will pass your FORS audit and achieve accreditation. Please note, our offer does not include writing your company’s health and safety policy or risk assessments, although we can help you prepare these.
What are the benefits of FORS accreditation?
As well as demonstrating your commitment to driver and road safety, having FORS accreditation can help you win new business – and avoid losing existing customers. At JCS Transport Consultancy, we believe FORS is a driving force for real improvement and change in the road haulage and fleet management industry.
After I have my FORS, will I be re-audited?
If you remain at Bronze level an onsite audit will have to be completed every year. Once at Silver or Gold FORS, onsite audits are completed every two years. Those who are renewing their Gold and Silver accreditations will also have to provide evidence annually.
