About NPORS

Established in 1992, the National Plant Operators Registration Scheme is now one of the UK’s leading Accreditation and Registration Bodies, working across the Construction, Industrial, Utilities, Warehousing and Distribution, Agricultural, Ports and Marine sectors.

NPORS offers flexibility, whilst maintaining standards, both nationally and internationally by working with industry and Accredited Training Providers.

NPORS and the Accrediting Bodies Association (ABA)

As a result of the announcement by HSE in 2010 that the existing Accrediting Bodies scheme was to be reviewed, the formation of the Accrediting Bodies Association – Workplace Transport (ABA) was announced on the 13th September 2012. Final HSE board approval has now been granted and the HSE will continue to provide advice to the ABA on training issues arising from L117.

The ABA and its founder members: AITT, ITSSAR, NPORS and RTITB are looking forward to the future and working together to bring clarity to workplace transport training for our industry. For further information, please visit: www.abawt.co.uk.
