The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has approved the ELD ONE list The number of registered Electronic Loggers (ELDs).
FMCSA is urging drivers and businesses using ELDs to switch to another ELD provider within 60 days from January 31st. Paper logs can be used to cover a short period of service migration, but only eight days per federal regulations.
ELD ONE has been placed on the revoked device list due to the company’s violation of 49 CFR Part 395 Subpart B, Appendix A, Section 188.8.131.52.
The rule requires that ELDs without printers be designed so that “a display can reasonably be viewed by authorized safety personnel without entering a commercial vehicle.”
This rule covers the ability to view ELDs on mobile devices such as mobile phones and tablets. In most cases, the driver hands over the device to the inspector. Inspectors use inspection mode to enter credentials, inspect stored information, and send copies to patrol vehicles.
Bans may be revoked
TMS ONE, the manufacturer of the product, may revoke the ban once the issue that caused the removal is resolved. In a message posted by ELD ONE facebook pagewhich blamed the problem on a “temporary glitch” and assured the client that a fix was in the works.
“Our team is currently going through a development process to improve the system and an update will be released on February 15th. We recommend that you temporarily track your service time with the , instead of the driver application.Our team is working diligently to resolve this issue as soon as possible and we apologize for the inconvenience. I’m sorry.”
The FMCSA has sent an industry-wide email to the automotive industry that anyone using an ELD ONE device should stop using the device and revert to paper logs or logging software to record service data. Notify the carrier. Then the device should be replaced with a r compliant ELD.List of registered devices Before April 1st.
Once ELD ONE has corrected all identified defects, FMCSA will return it to the list of registered devices and notify the industry.
Carriers urged to act now
for now, Safety officers are advised not to cite drivers using ELD ONE because the ELD is not working. Instead, the safety officer should request a paper log of the driver, logging software, or use her ELD ONE display as a backup method to check service time data.
Motor carriers that continue to use ELD ONE after April 1st will be considered to be operating without ELD. A safety officer who has encountered a driver using ELD ONE since April 1 said: CVSA OOS Standard.
FMCSA strongly recommends that motor carriers take the above actions to avoid compliance issues if ELD ONE deficiencies are not addressed in time.
