All-Ways Track ELD has been removed from the list of registered Electronic Logging Devices by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, making it the most recent ELD to be removed by the FMCSA in three months.
All-Ways Track ELD was removed on March 27, according to a news release by the federal agency. The action follows the removal of ONE PLUS ELD, now known as 1 PL Logs, on Feb. 8. Nationwide ELD on Feb. 3 and ELD ONE on Jan. 31.
The four were placed on the revoked devices list because they violated a rule requiring an ELD without a printer to be designed so that “an authorized safety official may reasonably view the display without entering the commercial motor vehicle.”
Under FMCSA rules, an ELD must be able to be viewed on a mobile device, such as a cell phone or tablet. In most situations, the driver hands over the device to the inspector, who uses the inspection mode to enter their credentials, look over the information stored and send copies to their patrol vehicle.
May 26 deadline to switch
The federal agency is directing motor carriers and drivers to stop using the revoked All-Ways Track ELD and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data and replace the revoked device with a compliant ELD from the registered devices list before May 26. Beginning on that date, a driver determined to be using a revoked All-Ways
Track ELD will be in violation of regulations and placed out-of-service in accordance with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance OOS Criteria.
If the ELD providers correct all deficiencies, FMCSA will place their devices back on the registered devices list and inform the industry. However, FMCSA strongly encourages motor carriers to take its recommended actions to avoid compliance issues in case these deficiencies are not addressed in time.
