ALERT: If you use one of these 10 ELDs, the FMCSA says you’re no longer compliant

Published:

Motor carriers need to act fast after the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) removed 10 ELDs from the agency’s list of approved devices.

On December 1, 2023, the FMCSA announced that 10 ELDs have been removed from the list of registered devices due to failure to meet minimum requirements.

Motor carriers using one of the removed ELDs have until January 30, 2024, to switch to an FMCSA approved device.

See the table below for details on the removed ELDs.

Carriers using a device on the list above should discontinue using the revoked ELD and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data until an approved device can be obtained.

While the FMCSA provides a 60 day grace period, motor carriers and drivers using a revoked device on or after January 30, 2024 will be in violation of “No record of duty status” and drivers will be placed out-of-service.

“If the ELD providers correct all identified deficiencies for their devices, FMCSA will place the ELDs back on the list of registered devices and inform the industry and the field. However, FMCSA strongly encourages motor carriers to take the actions listed above now to avoid compliance issues in the event that these deficiencies are not addressed in time,” the FMCSA stated
