FMCSA knocks 5 ELDs off list of approved devices


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced on Thursday that several Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) are no longer approved for use by motor carriers and should be replaced as soon as possible.

In a February 29 statement, the FMCSA said that the following devices have been placed on the Revoked Devices list for failure to meet minimum requirements:

  • CN ELD
  • TT ELD 30
  • TT ELD 1010

Carriers using one of the revoked devices are advised to take the following steps:

  1. Discontinue using the revoked ELDs and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data.
  2. Replace the revoked ELDs with compliant ELDs from the Registered Devices list before April 28, 2024.

Carriers have 60 days to replace a revoked ELD with an approved device.

After April 28, 2024, carriers still using a revoked device will be considered by law enforcement to be operating without an ELD and will be placed out of service.

“FMCSA strongly encourages motor carriers to take the actions listed above now to avoid compliance issues in the event that the deficiencies are not addressed by the ELD providers,” the agency said.
