IRTE Workshop Accreditation

Recognised as the impartial voice of the industry, IRTE believes in promoting competence, best practice and safety in the workplace, as well as recognising and addressing the needs of those working in the transport industry. Because of this, we developed the IRTE Workshop Accreditation Scheme, which is an independent verification of the health and safety, quality and expertise of your workshop(s)

This programme enables maintenance providers to demonstrate their competence and excellence whilst allowing operators and manufacturers to choose workshops that have been independently assessed to IRTE’s quality assured standards.
Under IRTE Workshop Accreditation, IRTE Approved Auditors will assess compliance in key areas such as premises, equipment, technical and clerical staff, management, documentation, quality and appearance.
The scheme provides an independent benchmark enabling easy and informed decision-making from customers, whilst also increasing the overall standard of vehicle repair.
