The world of fleet management is ever-evolving, with regulations constantly changing. In a significant development, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has recently revoked 10 ELDs, removing them from the Registered Devices List.

This recent action impacts many businesses relying on these devices to track hours of service (HOS) to meet legal requirements and avoid fines.

Understanding the Revocation

The FMCSA’s decision was due to the failure of these devices to meet the minimum legal requirements in functional specifications. As of December 1, 2023, the following ELDs are no longer compliant: CI ELD LOGS, ELD 2 GO, ELD4TRUCKING, ELOG365, Golden ELD, POWERTRUCKS, STEER RIGHT, TruckX-, TST 1, and WORLD TRUCKING. Therefore, it is crucial for motor carriers and drivers who used these revoked ELDs to replace them with compliant devices within 60 days to avoid potential regulatory issues.

Is Your Business on the List?

Ensuring your fleet is compliant transcends mere adherence to regulations.  It’s also a pivotal strategy for safeguarding your business’s efficiency and reputation. ELDs play a crucial role in protecting your drivers from overwork. This aspect is particularly vital for 24/7 service companies, where the demands on drivers can be intense and continuous.
