The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has removed Nationwide Technologies’ Nationwide ELD from the list of registered electronic logging devices.
Effective Feb. 3, FMCSA placed the Nationwide ELD on the revoked devices list due to the company’s failure to meet the minimum requirements established in 49 CFR part 395, subpart B, appendix A.
Motor carriers who use Nationwide ELD devices must take the following steps:
- Discontinue using the revoked device(s) and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data.
- Replace the revoked device(s) with compliant ELD(s) from the Registered Devices list before April 4, 2023.
During this 60-day period, safety officials are encouraged not to cite drivers using Nationwide ELD. Safety officials should request the driver’s paper logs, logging software, or use the Nationwide ELD display as a back-up method to review the hours of service data.
Beginning April 4, motor carriers who continue to use the revoked device listed above would be considered to be operating without an ELD. Safety officials who encounter a driver using a revoked device on or after April 4 will cite the driver and place the driver out-of-service.
If the ELD provider corrects all identified deficiencies, FMCSA will place the device back on the list of registered devices and inform the industry and the field.
Earlier this week, the FMCSA removed the ELD ONE device from the list as well.
