accreditation and progression

FORS is a method of recognising fleet operations which comply with the requirements of the FORS standard. The FORS standard is based upon lawfulness, safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. Fleet operator’s operations are audited against the requirements of the FORS Standard by an approved FORS certification body; a list of such organisations is available on the scheme administrator website.

FORS is a voluntary certification scheme aimed at ensuring that fleet operators work lawfully and to best practice as stated in the FORS standard. Specifiers (that is, those who either purchase or set the specification for fleet services) may ask their suppliers are FORS recognised. The standards cover:

  • Management
  • Drivers
  • Vehicles
  • Operations

To become FORS bronze accredited you must prove that you meet the criteria set out in the FORS standards and this is checked during a formal company audit carried out on your premises by an independent FORS auditor.
