FMCSA issues reminder on ELDs

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration distributed the following reminders.

Carriers and drivers subject to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations who are using paper logs or logging software must transition to electronic logging devices by Dec. 17, 2017. Carriers and drivers using automatic onboard recording devices before Dec. 18, 2017, may continue using AOBRDs through Dec. 16, 2019.

Prior to purchasing an ELD, carriers and drivers should confirm that the device is certified and registered with FMCSA and listed at this website: 3pdp.fmcsa.dot.gov/ELD/ELDList.aspx.
Devices not vendor-certified by manufacturers and registered with FMCSA may not be compliant with the FMCSRs
