FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) is a voluntary scheme, however, it is now required by many large infrastructure projects and an increasing number of businesses have FORS Champions, which means that they require all operators within their supply chain to be FORS accredited.
A FORS Champion represents an organisation who includes FORS as a contractual or procurement requirement in their supply chain.
FORS is useful for London hauliers and transport operators who wish to:
- Improve road safety
- Reduce the incidence of fines and other charges
- Reduce fuel emissions and enhance fuel efficiency
- Gain greater industry intelligence and networking opportunities
- Stand out from the crowd
FORS accreditation can be for a specific operating centre, but it must be for ALL of the vehicles at that specific operating centre.
For an operator to achieve Silver or Gold accreditation, they must maintain their Bronze accreditation and submit evidence to support their Silver or Gold application, using the FORS evidencing system.
FORS define an operating centre as a site or depot that commercial vehicles operate from, where there is infrastructure that supports daily management, control and day to day operational deployment of a fleet of vehicles.
The FORS definition is not the same as the definition according to Operator Licensing.
If you want to display the FORS logo, you must use the version which incorporates your FORS ID number and your Bronze, Silver or Gold status.
FORS Silver accreditation must be renewed each year.
FORS Gold accreditation must be renewed each year, as well as maintaining your Silver requirements each year.
The TFL’s Safer Lorry Scheme was introduced in London in September 2015 and operates 24-hours a day within the City’s Low Emission Zone. Its aim is to improve cyclist and pedestrian safety and legally requires every vehicle in London weighing more than 3.5 tonnes to be fitted with:
- Class V and Class VI mirrors that give drivers a better view of pedestrians and cyclists around their vehicles
- Side guards to prevent cyclists being dragged under the wheels in the event of a collision
All vehicles with FORS accreditation will be compliant to the Safer Lorry Scheme.
