The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration today announced it has removed another electronic logging device from its list of registered devices.

FMCSA in an emailed statement said has removed the Nationwide Technologies Inc.'s Nationwide ELD from the list from which truckers and carriers can select an ELD. The model number is NWTELDV1.1 and the identifier is NWT001ELD. 

FMCSA said the Nationwide device was removed from the list of registered ELDs "due to the company’s failure to meet the minimum requirements established in 49 CFR part 395, subpart B, appendix A."

This device now appears on FMCSA’s Revoked Devices list.

Motor carriers and drivers who use the Nationwide device must:

  • Discontinue using the revoked device(s) and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data
  • Replace the revoked device(s) with compliant ELD(s) from Registered Devices List before April 4
Motor carriers and drivers who continue to use the revoked Nationwide ELD listed above on or after April 4, 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

If the ELD provider corrects all identified deficiencies, FMCSA will place the device back on the Registered Devices list and inform the industry and the field. 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.

Last month, the FMCSA removed the ELD ONE from the list of Registered Devices. The company said it will appeal that removal.
