FMCSA removes two devices from list of registered ELDs

The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) removed two electronic logging devices (ELDs) from the list of registered devices. 

The Blue Star ELD and ELD Mandate Plus devices were placed on the revoked devices list because of a failure to meet the requirements in 49 CFR, part 395, subpart B, appendix A. That regulation deals functional requirements for ELDs. 

FMCSA recommends motor carriers discontinue the use of the revoked ELDs and revert to paper logs or logging software to record the required hours of service data or replace the revoked ELDs with compliant ELDs from the registered devices list before July 20. 

If the ELD providers correct all identified deficiencies, FMCSA says it will place the ELDs back on the list of registered devices. Safety officials are encouraged not to cite drivers for using these revoked ELDs in the mean time. Instead, FMCSA recommends they request the driver's paper logs, logging software or use the ELD display as a back-up method to review the hours of service data. 

After July 20, motor carriers who continue to use the revoked devices will be considered as operating without an ELD. After that date, safety officials should cite drivers with the revoked devices and place them out of service.
