FMCSA revokes a second ELD this week, users should switch to paper logs


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has revoked another Electronic Logging Device (ELD) from its list of registered devices.

On Friday, February 3, the FMCSA added Nationwide ELD to its list of revoked devices for failure to meet technical specifications.

On Tuesday, January 31, the FMCSA removed ELD ONE from the list of approved devices.

The FMCSA instructs users of either device to take the following steps:

  1. Discontinue using the revoked device(s) and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data.
  2. Replace the revoked device(s) with compliant ELD(s) from the Registered Devices list.

The FMCSA grants motor carriers a 60 day period to transition to an approved device. Following that 60 day period, drivers who continue to use the revoked device are considered to be  operating without an ELD and could be cited or placed out of service.

For Nationwide ELD users, the grace period lasts until April 4, 2023.

For ELD ONE users, the grace period lasts through April 1, 2023.
