Blue light services

FCS1362:2016 is the default standard for all installations and modifications of radio-frequency equipment in blue-light and public sector vehicle fleets.

The standard covers every aspect of safe and professional best-practice when installing equipment from reversing sensors and cameras to radios, tablets and light-bars. FCS1362 is referenced in the National Association of Police Fleet Managers’ guidance documents for fleet garages. It is also the required default standard for civilian vehicles and the MOD white fleet under the public sector vehicle procurement framework RM956, issued by the Government Procurement Service (now Crown Commercial Services) in 2013.

FCS is building on this long-standing commitment to emergency services best practice with the launch of a special Blue Light Installation training module. The new module, which covers fire, police and ambulance best practice, will form part of our suite of Continuous Professional Development options for accredited members of the FITAS vehicle installer scheme.

If you have any questions before you apply, please email fitas@fcs.org.uk.
