The CLOCS Standard also requires CLOCS organisations to demonstrate that they are a ‘Quality Operation’ by proving that their operation has been subjected to an approved independent fleet management audit, for example FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme).
Recent Commercial Vehicle Unit (CVU) statistics from the Metropolitan Police show that FORS operators are:
- 76% less likely to be involved in licencing/insurance offences
- 64% less likely to be involved in Most Serious Infringement Offences (MSI)
- 50% less likely to be involved in Drivers Hours offences
