FORS accreditation fees announced

02 February 2015/Categories: CILT, Press Releases, Industry News

On Friday (30th January) the FORS Community Partnership (FCP) announced details of the pricing structure established to roll out the award-winning scheme nationally. This follows the announcement that Transport for London (TfL) has awarded the FORS concession to the FCP, comprising of AECOM, CILT and Fleet Source.

FORS is an award-winning scheme encouraging the adoption of best practice across all fleet operations. FORS members have access to a range of exclusive benefits including the opportunity to secure business with organisations who specify accreditation standards, improve safety, reduce environmental impact and save money.  

FORS is committed to raising professional standards and by establishing the scheme nationwide the industry will benefit from a recognised national benchmark for all fleet operations, raising standards across the UK. 
From 17th February 2015 all new companies joining FORS will pay: 

• an annual subscription fee based on their fleet size
• an audit fee based on the number of operating centres they wish to have accredited.  

For companies that are already FORS accredited there will be a charge for the annual renewal although this charge will be waived or reduced in the first year, depending on the company’s renewal date.  Further details can be found in the rate card linked at the end of this release.

All FORS operators will have access to:
• Advice, guidance and campaign toolkits
• Performance management tool
• e-learning modules
• Regular news and bulletins
• Offers and discounts from FORS Associate suppliers

FORS operators working in London will have access to funded:
• CPC training for HGV drivers
• Safety training for van drivers
• Best practice workshops for managers

For new operators to the scheme annual registration starts from £65 for a company with one vehicle, plus the cost of an annual audit. Companies with their own internal audit capability can be approved to certify their own depots to the FORS standard.  

John Hix, FORS Community Partnership Concession Director said ‘TfL has fully funded FORS for the past seven years and established the scheme as a benchmark standard for industry.  The scheme is now being offered across the UK and a funding model has been created to facilitate the continuing growth of the scheme to improve and develop the benefits it offers whilst becoming financially sustainable.’

Commenting on the development of the FORS self-funding scheme, Steve Agg FCILT, Chief Executive, CILT said: ‘The FORS Community Partnership has established a fair and sustainable pricing structure to ensure that all fleet operators are encouraged to join the award-winning scheme. We recognise the importance of developing a national benchmark for all and have demonstrated our commitment to professional development in ensuring that all operators have access to FORS.’

FORS enables operators to demonstrate their commitment to managing road risk, reducing environmental impact and improving operational efficiency improving overall fleet road safety and reducing the wider impacts of freight and fleet operations. We are also seeking to expand the business community that specifies FORS within their contracts as this enables such businesses to demonstrate their commitment to improving road safety, reducing environmental impact and encouraging best practice.
