The association aims to have the amendment reapproved by TfL in time for the launch of FORS’ 4.0 on 9 November.

Deputy chief executive of the FTA, James Hookham, said that the association had examined the new FORS standards and described them as “quite far reaching.” However he said: “The Truck Excellence Plus scheme is designed to be flexible.”

A TfL spokesperson said that the Truck Excellence Plus would need to align with the new FORs standard to retain TfL recognition.
