About the accreditation

IRTE Workshop Accreditation provides an independent, best practice review of workshop procedures and set up.

IRTE Workshop Accreditation 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 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.


Band A (5 workshops or less) £775 + VAT per audit

Band B (6 - 30 workshops) £735 + VAT per audit

Band C (31 workshops or more) £695 + VAT per audit

"Wincanton and other major fleet operators welcome the development of a workshop accreditation scheme, particularly one aimed at the heavy vehicle market. Accredited workshops will be able to showcase their service offerings to a key customer group, demonstrate their continued improvement and establish their credibility in the broad marketplace."

Dave Rowlands, Technical Services Director, Wincanton Group Ltd
