Truckers should switch to paper logs as FMCSA slaps a third ELD device off the approved list


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has removed another Electronic Logging Device (ELD) from the agency’s list of approved devices, making this the third device removed in less than two weeks.

On February 8, the FMCSA removed ONE PLUS ELD (n/k/a 1 PL Logs) from the approved device list. The agency said that the device failed to meet the technical specifications required by federal law.

Motor carriers who use this device are advised by FMCSA 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 before April 10, 2023

Carriers will have a 60 day grace period to replace this revoked device with an approved device. Following this period, carriers who continue to use the revoked device listed above would be considered to be operating without an ELD.

Law enforcement officials who encounter a driver using a revoked device on or after April 10, 2023, are instructed by the FMCSA to issue a citation and place the driver out of service.

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

On February 3, the FMCSA removed Nationwide ELD from the list of approved devices.
