Thorough examination logo has added status

The distinctive forklift tick logo of the Consolidated Fork Truck Services (CFTS) thorough examination (TE) scheme has had a subtle but significant addition, the words ‘Certification Mark’.

To use the term ‘Certification Mark’, CFTS sought official recognition from the UK Trade Marks Registry.
CFTS chairman Steve Hodkinson said the CFTS scheme more than met the registry’s stringent requirements. "It was, after all, set up to ensure uniformly high standards in the delivery of TE," he said.

Hodkinson said the scheme already had the support of the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) and the British Industrial Truck Association (BITA), which worked jointly as CFTS, in consultation with the Health & Safety Executive, to establish it (Forkliftaction.com News #223).

"Only companies accredited to deliver CFTS’s thorough examinations can use the CFTS logo and, to be accredited, they must agree to abide by the strict CFTS procedural code," Hodkinson said.

"With more than 120 CFTS accredited companies spread right across the UK, it makes absolute sense to look for the Certification Mark when seeking TEs. Without it, you could be taking a very big risk."
