Truckers using these two ELDs should switch to paper logs immediately, FMCSA says


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has removed two Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) from the agency’s list of approved devices.

On May 21, the FMCSA announced that BLUE STAR ELD and ELD MANDATE PLUS have been added to the agency’s list of Revoked Devices due to failure to meet minimum requirements.

The FMCSA allows motor carriers 60 days to switch to an approved device.

After July 20, 2024, the FMCSA will direct law enforcement to cite revoked ELD users for “No record of duty status” and place them out-of-service.

Drivers and carriers using the revoked ELDs are asked to take the following actions:

  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 July 20, 2024.

“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.
