Two more electronic logging devices have received mandatory third-party certification in Canada. All fleets operating in Canada are required to be equipped with a certified ELD by June 12.
Omnitracs’ Intelligent Vehicle Gateway and the Platform Science PS5000 have been certified by FPInnovations for compliance with the Canadian ELD mandate.
“Omnitracs' IVG ELD has passed extensive and thorough testing with an accredited certification body to confirm compliance with the ELD technical standards," said Michael Ahart, vice president of regulatory affairs at Omnitracs’ parent company Solera. "This certification further strengthens our commitment to provide reliable technology infrastructure to fleets, enabling our customers to continue operating confidently and meeting their compliance obligations.”
Transport Canada's amendment to the Commercial Vehicle Drivers' hours of service regulations mandates that federally regulated motor carriers and drivers who maintain daily paper logs for recording HOS will need to replace existing electronic recording devices (or upgrade software) and paper logs with ELDs that have been tested and certified by an accredited, third-party certification body.
To date, 22 devices have been certified.
