The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) continues to whittle down the list of registered electronic logging devices (ELD).
Devices from All Truckers ELD, PrimELD, and Secure ELD have been removed from the list of registered ELDs. FMCSA has placed these ELDs on the revoked services list because they failed to meet the minimum requirements established in 49 CFR part 395, subpart B, appendix A, effective July 25.
The regulation “requires that an ELD without a printer be designed so that the display may be reasonably viewed by an authorized safety official without entering the commercial motor vehicle.”
The revoked list has grown to nearly 160 devices.
FMCSA says motor carriers and drivers must stop using the newly revoked ELDs and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data. They must also replace the revoked ELDs with compliant ELDs from the registered devices list before Sept. 23.
During this time, safety officials should request the driver’s paper logs, logging software, or use the ELD display as a back-up method to review the hours of service data.
Drivers or carriers who miss the Sept. 23 deadline will face a “no record of duty status” violation and be placed out of service, according to Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance OOS Criteria.
If the ELD providers correct all deficiencies, FMCSA will place the ELDs back on the list of registered devices and inform the industry.
FMCSA strongly encourages motor carriers to act now to avoid compliance issues in the event that the deficiencies are not addressed in time.
