FMCSA lists active and revoked ELDs.

HDT Graphic

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has removed 10 electronic logging devices from its list of registered ELDs that meet the technical specifications in the ELD rule.

Update — Two of these ELDs have been reinstated: CI ELD LOGS and Powertrucks ELD.

Unlike Canada's ELD rule, which requires third-party certification, in the U.S., suppliers are allowed to self-certify that they meet the technical requirements.

Which ELDs Are No Longer Approved?

Motor carriers and drivers using the following devices have 60 days to replace them with compliant ELDs.

These ELDs now appear on FMCSA’s Revoked Devices list, which now has 17 pages of listings.

What Should Carriers and Truck Drivers Do About Revoked ELDs?

Motor carriers and drivers who use the ELDs listed above must take the following actions:

  1. Discontinue using the revoked ELDs and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data.
  2. Replace the revoked ELDs with compliant ELDs from the Registered Devices list before January 30, 2024.

Motor carriers and drivers who continue to use the revoked ELDs listed above on or after January 30, 2024, will be in violation of 49 CFR 395.8(a)(1)—“No record of duty status” and drivers will be placed out-of-service in accordance with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) OOS Criteria.

FMCSA's ELD FAQ

If the ELD providers correct all identified deficiencies for their devices, FMCSA will place the ELDs back on the Registered Devices list and inform the industry and the field. And in fact, that happened with one revoked ELD earlier this year, with the agency reinstating it to the list within a day after announcing its removal.

However, FMCSA strongly encourages motor carriers to take the actions listed above now to avoid compliance issues in the event that these deficiencies are not addressed in time.
