Coronavirus: FORS suspends audits

FORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme.

FORS – the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme – has suspended all FORS Bronze site audit activity from today (Monday, March 23) until further notice.

An official communication to the scheme’s primary and secondary contacts stated that “organisations with audits booked to take place up to and including Monday 23 March can cancel them if they wish and receive a full audit refund. Cancellation charges will not apply”.

It explained: “Organisations with audits booked to take place after Monday 23 March 2020 will receive a full refund and cancellation charges will not apply.

“The Silver and Gold evidencing system will remain open for organisations that wish to submit an application for auditing but this is optional.

“From 23 March until further notice, your FORS accreditation status will be maintained at its current level and there will be no Bronze, Silver or Gold downgrades where accreditation dates are exceeded.”

FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme established in 2008. It is open to UK and non-UK fleet operators, and to the organisations that award contracts to those operators.

FORS is managed by the FORS Community Partnership, comprising: AECOM; the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport; and Fleet Source.
