New FORS Standard unveiled

Added: 13 November 2018

FORS has published a new FORS Standard, which sets out the requirements operators must meet if they wish to become FORS accredited.

The FORS Standard is updated every two years to reflect the evolution of best practice.  The new edition, published as FORS reaches its 10th year of operation, addresses the need for air quality improvements and sets out requirements to help operators mitigate against threats of terrorism.  Provision is also made for a broader range of operations and vehicles, and there are new requirements for bus and coach operators.

“FORS has always been committed to promoting continuous best practice, both in the progressive nature of our accreditation, and in the way we work to ensure our requirements remain relevant,” FORS Director John Hix said.  “The FORS Standard is not a static document, because best practice is not static.  The FORS Standard must respond to emerging best practice and new legislations which affect members, and the feedback of members themselves.”

He added: “FORS has grown from a relatively-small London-centric operation to over 5,000 members of diverse fleets nationwide.  With this national remit, it is vital that FORS is flexible enough to meet the evolving challenges our members face and to help operators striving for continuous operational excellence and best practice.
