February saw all workshops gain IRTE Workshop Accreditation which provides an independent, best practice review of workshop procedures and set up. It involves an audit by an IRTE – accredited FTA auditor, highlighting best practice compliance in areas such as premises, equipment, technical staff, management, clerical staff, documentation, quality and appearance.

To ensure the scheme meets the industry’s current and ongoing requirements, IRTE Workshop Accreditation is valid for three years.

Maintenance providers receiving IRTE Workshop Accreditation achieve a competitive advantage, benefiting from inclusion in the IRTE Workshop Accreditation Register, thereby demonstrating their commitment to delivering high levels of service. This comprehensive online database of accredited maintenance providers includes information on location, services, facilities, vehicle test pass rates, RIDDOR stats, HSE notices and more.

This is testament to all the hard work and input from the team, well done.
