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.

"[IRTE Workshop Accreditation] provides a recognised standard for the workshop and supplies an independent accreditation for an operator looking to change service and maintenance provider."
