Two ELDs removed from FMCSA’s list

Replace your devices within 60 days

Posted May 24, 2024

The FMCSA has reinstated the BLUE STAR ELD to the list of registered ELDs as of May 23, 2024. BLUE STAR ELDs are compliant devices and carriers can continue using them.

Many ELD providers remove their devices from the list voluntarily, but the FMCSA has the authority to remove any ELD that does not comply with regulations.

Next steps for commercial carriers

Commercial carriers who use ELD MANDATE PLUS devices must replace them with compliant ELDs before July 20, 2024, and:

  1. Stop using the two revoked devices,
  2. Switch to paper logs/logging software until compliant hardware is installed, and
  3. Look out for notice from FMCSA if these devices become compliant again.

ELD providers who correct device deficiencies are placed back on the list of registered devices, and FMCSA informs the industry when revoked devices are compliant again.

ELD compliance standards

During the 60-day replacement period, the FMCSA has instructed safety officials to review affected drivers’ hours-of-service data using logging software, paper logs, or the ELD display.

After July 20, 2024, any motor carrier that continues to use the revoked BLUE STAR or ELD MANDATE PLUS devices will be considered operating without an ELD. Drivers will be placed out of service and cited for “No record of duty status” (395.8(a)(1)).
