Phil Breen has worked for the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for over seventeen years, working in both Testing and Enforcement departments. Having been a Traffic Examiner for several years, he brought this knowledge forward into heading up bus compliance for DVSA and now looking after the Earned Recognition scheme. The DVSA Earned Recognition is the flagship Enforcement scheme for DVSA, which enables the agency to free up resource so they can target the serially and seriously non-compliant. This helps us all stay safe on our roads, as well as offering both costs savings to members & giving commercial advantages. The new Earned Recognition audit standards, sets a blueprint for what compliance looks like for an operator or business. These sit alongside commercial modules for contracts relating to TfL, HS2, LPT2, Concrete operations and the Guild of British Coach Operators to name but a few.

Phil’s role within Earned Recognition is to develop the scheme and engage with the ER members. Also, Phil engages with industry to understand the development and take up of new technologies, that are in line with the ER ethos of safety & compliance. Aswell as informing industry and the Road to Earned Recognition programme, aimed at new operators and helping them get it right from day one.
