FORS mixed accreditations – manage the scope of your accreditation

FORS accreditation demonstrates that your transport operation goes above and beyond industry best practice for safety, efficiency and environmental protection. In order to support this, accreditation must be attained across a whole operating centre, and at the same level – FORS Bronze or FORS Silver or FORS Gold.

However, those with multiple operating centres:

  • Do not have to include all of their operating centres within the scope of accreditation; members decide which operating centres are in scope or out of scope
  • Can achieve a particular level of accreditation at a single operating centre (for example one operating centre at Bronze and two at Silver)

FORS defines an ‘operating centre’ as a site or depot from where commercial vehicles operate, where there is infrastructure that supports daily management, control, and day-to-day operational deployment of a fleet.
