Earned Recognition Audit


As an authorised Earned Recognition audit provider, FTA can support an operator’s application by providing a full and comprehensive audit required to join the Earned Recognition scheme. Audits will be undertaken by our competent and qualified auditors who fully meet and exceed DVSA’s auditor criteria at a location(s) most suitable to demonstrate your systems. Driver and vehicle files must also be available for sampling during the audit.

Following the audit day with you, a comprehensive, documented report will be produced clearly identifying where standards have been met. Where opportunities for improvement have been identified, our expert team can support operators in creating an action plan to address issues and arrange a re-audit of these areas to demonstrate full compliance with all Earned Recognition audit standards. Full audits can be carried out initially and then again periodically, every two years.

FTA is also an authorised Earned Recognition drivers’ hours IT systems provider and can support operators with the continuous monitoring and reporting of drivers’ hours KPI’s to DVSA.

For who the audit is designed?

The audit is designed for operators looking to demonstrate their compliance with the required Earned Recognition audit standards. The audit looks at the processes involved in the transport management systems and how effectively they are managed, demonstrating that any compliance issues are investigated and appropriately actioned.
