The FMCSA’s final ELD rule was published in December 2015, and the first compliance deadline was December 2019. The mandate applies to over three million drivers on the road today, and with many still working toward compliance after the deadline, the trucking industry as a whole must be up-to-speed.
All CDL drivers required to keep a Record of Duty Status (RODS) must use an ELD to document their compliance with HOS rules.
The new ELD rule adds certain technical and performance specifications that exactly define what the device must feature.
- Drivers who use the short-haul, timecard exceptions are not required to keep records of duty status (RODS) or use ELDs.
- 12/15/2015 – ELD Final Rule Published.
- 12/18/2017 – ELD Final Rule Compliance Date.
- 12/16/2019 – ELD Mandatory Use of ELDs.
- Starting December 16, 2019, all carriers and drivers subject to the ELD rule must use ELDs.
- Q: Does the ELD rule require real-time tracking of a commercial motor vehicle (CMVs) with ELDs?
- A: No, real-time tracking of CMVs is not required in the ELD rule. Yet, a motor carrier may use technology to track its CMVs in real-time for business purposes.
