ELD rule expected end of October

Most drivers will need to track hours with devices

Posted October 22, 2015

According to the most recent issue of the Unified Agenda, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration continues to suggest that the electronic logging device (ELD) rule will be approved and published by October 30, 2015.

The ELD rule will require most interstate commercial truck and bus drivers to begin using electronic recorders to track their hours of work, affecting more than 3 million drivers. Most drivers who currently complete paper logs will need to switch to ELDs within two years after the rule’s effective date, although exceptions will likely be granted for certain short-haul and intermittent drivers.

Drivers who currently use a compliant electronic logging system are expected to have four years to make sure their devices comply with the new ELD standards.
