The ELD ONE electronic logging device (ELD) used for logging driver hours-of-service data in the transportation industry has been removed from the federal list of approved devices.
ELD ONE devices were removed from the list of registered ELDs Jan. 31 by the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) because the company failed to meet minimum requirements for such devices.
FMCSA will be sending an industry email to let motor carriers who use ELD ONE devices know they must:
- discontinue using the revoked devices and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data, and
- replace the revoked devices with compliant ELDs from the Registered Devices list before April 1, 2023.
Grace period in effect
Motor carriers get a grace period of up to 60 days to replace the revoked devices with compliant ELDs.
During the grace period, safety officials are encouraged not to cite drivers using ELD ONE devices for 395.8(a)(1) – “No ELD” or 395.22(a) – “Failed to use a registered ELD.” During this time, safety officials should request the driver’s paper logs, logging software, or use the ELD ONE display as a back-up method to review the hours of service data.
Drivers placed out-of-service after April 1
Beginning April 1, 2023, motor carriers who continued to use ELD ONE devices will be considered to be operating without an ELD and safety officials will be approved to place drivers out-of-service.
FMCSA “strongly encourages” motor carriers to take action now to avoid compliance issues in the event that the ELD provider fails to address the deficiencies in time.
If the ELD provider corrects the identified deficiencies, FMCSA will notify motor carriers and place the device back on the Registered Devices list.
