The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a national accreditation scheme that promotes good practice for commercial vehicle operators, aiming to raise efficiency and quality standards within fleets.
FORS is open to operators of vans, lorries, coaches, and other vehicles. While it is voluntary, a FORS accreditation makes good business sense for the benefits it offers. This includes giving your customers peace of mind that they are dealing with a firm that takes safety and compliance very seriously.
Whether you are an independent owner or have a large fleet of vehicles, our team of experienced consultants can help to simplify and explain FORS requirements, as well as provide the compliant vehicle camera systems to help you achieve accreditation.
FORS members stand out from the crowd by demonstrating that their firm works to a high standard above the legal minimum. This provides access to a wide range of benefits that provide a real competitive advantage, for example, more and more companies are now insisting that their suppliers must be FORS accredited in order to be considered for contracts.
Additionally, the fuel efficiency achieved through FORS accreditation can lead to significant cost savings, as well as the added benefit of more environmentally friendly vehicles.
The FORS audit looks for evidence of systems, procedures, and documentation that shows you’re meeting FORS requirements. The audit will inspect all aspects of your fleet’s safety measures, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions, and operational processes.
Brigade will work with you to create a FORS compliant vehicle camera system designed around your specific vehicle fleet and operational needs, in order to help ensure you will pass your FORS audit and achieve accreditation.
You can rest assured that you are in safe hands. Brigade have been FORS consultants for over 10 years, with a nationwide network of BSPs (fitters).
We are an official FORS Associate Member which means we are recognised by FORS on their official suppliers list, as well as listed on their website.

The FORS standard requires that all vehicles in the fleet utilise a high quality camera monitoring system to minimise blind spots around the vehicle. As official FORS associate, Brigade supply, install and maintain FORS compliant safety solutions across the UK.
Our dedicated team here at Brigade will help you on your route to accreditation with a FORS compliant package to help you achieve Bronze, Silver, and Gold accreditation.
