FMCSA will hold ELD listening session

Compliance testing procedures to be focus of meeting

Posted February 18, 2016

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced it will hold an online public listening session concerning the electronic logging device (ELD) compliance test procedures. The meeting will be a forum for providers of ELDs to give feedback to the Agency on the non-binding procedures used to determine if an ELD meets the specifications of the ELD rulemaking published on December 16, 2015.

The online meeting is open to the public for its entirety. However, FMCSA particularly requests participation from the ELD provider community. The meeting offers the provider community an opportunity to give input on the voluntary compliance test procedures and share best practices. FMCSA plans to take this opportunity to ask those providers participating about their own internal testing procedures, as well as their thoughts on the procedures FMCSA has prepared. FMCSA says it may revise the compliance test procedures based on information received at this listening session.

An agenda for the meeting is available at Comments and input from the ELD providers and the public on the compliance test procedures will be accepted throughout the meeting, subject to the discretion of the Agency. The meeting will be live-captioned and recorded and available after the webinar on the ELD webpage in docket FMCSA-2016-0054.

The webinar session will be held on February 25, 2016, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time. Register for the webinar now.

Members of the public may submit written comments on the topics to be considered during the meeting by February 23, 2016, to the Federal eRulemaking Portal using Docket Number FMCSA-2016-0054.
