FORS Assist

Maintaining compliance is one thing;

Interest in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme has soared in recent years; as companies in transport, manufacturing and construction compete for the most lucrative contracts, FORS membership increases exponentially.

The impact of the scheme is such that many suppliers will consider only those businesses that are FORS-accredited in executing their high-end contracts.

As such, to gain work in the UK’s major cities, accreditation has become all but a necessity.

Even if you do not require accreditation to compete for contracts, attaining your FORS Bronze will certainly place you head and shoulders above your non-accredited competitors.

So, the question is: where do you start?

When applying for any exclusive accreditation,
there are always risks associated;

It is almost impossible to foresee whether your hard work, time and money will pay off.

When you apply for FORS Bronze, you will have to undergo an audit; this will be conducted by an approved, external FORS auditor. Many companies fail the first audit; others fail several.

This is the result of several factors, mainly:

  • Lack of preparation;
  • Lack of understanding; and
  • Misdirected effort.

Some companies underestimate the resources needed to pass the FORS Bronze audit;

others misjudge the exhaustive criteria, and others spend too much time and effort on one element at the expense of other elements.

The FORS Assist service, however, remedies these issues.

Think of the service as a fail-safe; with Chartwise guiding you through the entire process of gaining accreditation, the opportunity for failure is reduced dramatically.

Our dedicated FORS consultants will support you every step of the way, whether it’s in-person, by telephone, or by email.
