Earned Recognition

DVSA to launch Earned Recognition to the transport industry on the 24th April at the CV Show at the NEC.

Invergold have been invited to the launch as they are one of only 13 companies who have been approved to carry out the independent audits on a company’s transport systems to DVSA standards for Earned Recognition.

The initial on-site audit required by Earned Recognition has been recognised by DVSA as being closely aligned to those required by Earned Recognition and acknowledge the operators’ ability to achieve consistently high levels of safety and legal compliance across their fleet.

In a statement posted on its website, DVSA said: “From today (31 January 2018), vehicle operators taking part in a pilot of the scheme will no longer have their vehicles routinely stopped at the roadside by DVSA.

“This will let DVSA target its inspections and roadside checks at drivers and vehicles most likely to be
a danger to your safety.”

If you get a place on the DVSA earned recognition scheme, you’ll:

  • be an exemplary operator, and be able to prove this when you bid for contracts
  • be less likely to have your vehicles stopped at the roadside for inspections
  • be less likely to have DVSA enforcement staff visit your premises
  • be able to use the DVSA earned recognition marque on your website and other publicity materials
    (but not on your vehicles)
  • be recognised as a DVSA-approved operator on a list on GOV.UK
  • have direct access to a DVSA earned recognition business manager
