The Electronic Logging Device (ELD) RULE is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers, and make it easier, faster to accurately track, manage, and share records of duty status (RODS) data.
An ELD synchronizes with a vehicle engine to automatically record driving time, for easier, more accurate hours of service (HOS) recording.
Carriers & Drivers:
Those who are subject to the rule must install and use ELDs by the appropriate deadline:
Must understand enforcement and compliance procedures during each implementation phase, and which regulatory guidance applies to each.
Must conform to ELD technical specifications, certify their ELDs, and register them with FMCSA.
