One of two electronic logging devices removed from the list of registered devices is back in the good graces of federal regulators.

The Blue Star ELD, which the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration dropped from its list of registered devices on Tuesday, has been reinstated, the agency announced Thursday.

Truck drivers and motor carriers utilizing the Blue Star ELD, if they had stopped using it since Tuesday, can now return to using the device for technical compliance with the agency's ELD mandate.

FMCSA did not provide any information about why the device was revoked in the first place, but noted that if an ELD provider corrects the deficiencies with the devices, it would be reinstated to the registered devices list.
