The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration today announced it has removed ELD ONE from the list of registered Electronic Logging Devices. FMCSA said it has placed ELD ONE 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, effective Jan. 31.

FMCSA will be sending an industry email to let motor carriers know that all who use an ELD ONE device must take the following steps:

  1. Discontinue using the revoked device(s) and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data
  2. Replace the revoked device(s) with compliant ELD(s) from the Registered Devices list before April 1

Motor carriers have a period of up to 60 days to replace the revoked device(s) with compliant ELD(s). 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.

During the period, safety officials are encouraged not to cite drivers using ELD ONE 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 backup method to review the hours of service data.

Beginning April 1 motor carriers who continue to use the revoked device would be considered to be operating without an ELD. Safety officials who encounter a driver using a revoked device on or after April 1 should cite 395.8(a)(1), and place the driver out-of-service in accordance with the CVSA OOS Criteria.

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