FORS Pre Audit

Have a FORS audit coming up?

There’s no reason to leave your accreditation to chance.

FORS membership is gaining popularity throughout the UK. In fact, for many high-end transport, construction and manufacturing contracts, it is essential criteria. That’s why passing that FORS Bronze audit will prove vital for continued success as an operator.

Companies, especially those with a smaller fleet and fewer staff, often struggle to implement the rigorous FORS criteria. Because the criteria is designed to standardise the systems of large and small fleets alike, smaller operators may experience some vertigo in the effort to step up – the upheaval caused by preparing for a FORS audit can cause disorder in the office, and confusion in regard to procedure.

But there’s no reason to do it on your own.

So, what is a FORS pre-audit?

The FORS pre-audit involves a full GAP analysis of your set-up, after which an action plan, complete with necessary changes and recommendations, will be generated.

This is where Chartwise come in.

But there are still some questions for us to answer. Namely – how to get a FORS pre-audit, and what it involves. Well…

The FORS pre-audit is essentially a dry-run – a readiness test that ensures an operation can pass an official FORS Bronze audit first time.

This pre-audit holds two main benefits for an operator:

  • Savings – there’ll be no need to shell out for multiple attempts at passing;
  • Peace of mind – you’ll be given the tools to maximize your chances of success on the day.

But why choose Chartwise?

All Chartwise auditors hold transport manager CPC qualifications, and approved quality systems lead auditor qualifications verified by FORS.

Our auditors will conduct a full systems inspection against the relevant FORS standard; however, as opposed to a simple ‘pass or fail’, Chartwise will deliver an in-depth Gap analysis to ascertain whether your operation meets the appropriate criteria.

The Gap analysis will identify areas to be improved and will recommend actions to bring your systems in line with the FORS standard.

Our intimate knowledge of FORS accreditation allows us to provide a full guidance package that will ease you not only through your initial audit, but your subsequent reapproval audits also.
