Heads up, truckers! FMCSA revokes 3 ELDs
Posted July 28, 2023
FMCSA has removed electronic logging devices (ELDs) from its list of registered devices — and this time it’s more than just one. While many companies remove their devices from the list voluntarily, FMCSA has the authority to remove any ELD that does not comply with the regulations in 49 CFR 395, subpart B, appendix A.
Because of failure to meet minimum requirements, the following three devices were added to the Revoked Devices list:
- ALL TRUCKERS ELD,
- PRIMELD, and
- SECURE ELD.
GOLDEN ELD was also previously listed, but has since been reinstated on FMCSA’s list of registered devices. Review the full list of revoked devices at https://eld.fmcsa.dot.gov/List/Revoked.
ELD providers who correct device deficiencies are placed back on the list of registered devices. FMCSA informs the industry, FMCSA field offices, state motor carrier safety offices, and on-road officers when revoked devices are compliant again. Review the full list of registered devices at https://eld.fmcsa.dot.gov/List.
What carriers should do next
Motor carriers and truckers who use ELDs on the revoked list must:
- Stop using the device and revert to paper logs or logging software to record the required hours-of-service data, and
- Replace the device with a compliant ELD before September 23, 2023.
Motor carriers have 60 days to replace revoked ELDs, and safety officials are urged not to cite drivers during this time. Instead, safety officials should ask for alternative methods to review hours-of-service data, including logging software, paper logs, and the ELD display.
