What Other Evidence is Needed for FORS?


This sets down the groundwork for all other levels of accreditation.  Auditors look at all Maintenance and overall operations in more detail.  Once the policies and procedures are in place, there needs to be evidence these are actually being carried out.  Below are some examples of information recent auditors have requested.

  • Last 2 Driving Licence Checks (pdf or hard copy licence summary from GOV website)
  • Working Time & Drivers hours records – both current and 2 years previous
  • Completed Induction Form for most recent new starters.
