What is FORS Bronze?

FORS Bronze is a crucial first step in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) accreditation process. It acknowledges that a fleet operator has implemented good company practices and meets the requirements set by the FORS Standard. This standard prioritises the safety of drivers and vehicles, as well as the efficient and environmentally friendly management of the fleet.

The FORS Bronze level requires a comprehensive face-to-face audit, which can be conducted on-site or remotely. The auditor will evaluate the operator’s policies, procedures, and supporting documentation. They will also review maintenance records, record keeping practices, and driver training programs.

Successful completion of the FORS Bronze level audit is essential for progressing to the higher levels of Silver and Gold. However, it is important to note that the FORS Bronze level must be maintained annually. Once the operator has achieved the Silver or Gold level, the audits are required every two years, provided the accreditation is maintained, and that they are single operator centre businesses.

In conclusion, FORS Bronze is a vital part of the FORS accreditation process, and it is widely recognised as a demonstration of the operator’s commitment to safety, efficiency, and environmental responsibility. Obtaining and maintaining FORS Bronze is a key factor in ensuring the success and competitiveness of a fleet operation.
