FMCSA Revokes 10 Non-Compliant ELDs in December 2023 – Updated

On December 1, 2023, the FMCSA made a significant decision to remove 10 ELDs from their registered list. This decision was based on the failure of these ELD providers to meet the minimum requirements established in 49 CFR part 395, subpart B, appendix A.
As a result, motor carriers using any of these devices are now required to switch to compliant ELDs, by January 29, 2024.

The revoked ELDs

This is the full list of the Revoked ELDs:
1. CI ELD LOGS – REINSTATED on 8 December 2023.
2. ELD 2 GO
4. ELOG365
8. TruckX-ELD
9. TST 1 ELD
10. World Trucking ELD

Motor carriers have been given a grace period of up to 60 days to replace these revoked ELDs with compliant ones. This deadline is set for January 29, 2024. If carriers continue to use the revoked ELDs beyond this date, specifically from January 30, 2024, they will be in violation of 49 CFR 395.8(a)(1).
During this period, drivers using the revoked ELDs are expected to revert to paper logs or logging software for recording required hours of service data until an approved device can be obtained.

The FMCSA has stated that if the providers of these ELDs rectify the identified deficiencies, they might reconsider their status. However, they strongly encourage motor carriers to take immediate actions to avoid compliance issues, should these deficiencies not be addressed in time.

Other ELD Removals in 2023

The December 1st removal is not the only one in 2023.
Earlier in the year, the agency had already taken similar action against other non-compliant ELDs.
On July 25, 2023, the FMCSA removed four ELDs: ALL TRUCKERS ELD, GOLDEN ELD, PRIMELD, and SECURE ELD, due to their failure to meet the minimum requirements established in federal regulations.

Furthermore, the FMCSA’s revocation list shows other instances where the agency removed ELDs for non-compliance, underscoring the critical nature of adhering to federal standards and regulations. This pattern of revocations indicates the FMCSA’s strict approach towards maintaining high standards for ELDs, thereby emphasizing the importance of carriers and drivers staying updated with the latest compliance requirements​​.

The Golden ELD Rollercoaster 

It’s interesting to note that this wasn’t the first time GOLDEN ELD faced removal. Earlier in the year, on July 25, 2023, GOLDEN ELD was also removed from the FMCSA’s list for similar reasons, indicating a recurring issue with meeting the required standards.
Golden ELD was however reinstated per FMCSA “As of July 25, 2023, the following device is now listed on the list of registered ELDs. The ELD was previously revoked but has been reinstated.”
Before being revoked from FMCSAs list again today no announcement by Golden ELD has been made. 

The removal of these devices highlights the importance of compliance with FMCSA regulations and the need for continual monitoring of ELDs to ensure they meet the required standards. For motor carriers and drivers, staying informed about such regulatory changes is crucial to avoid potential violations and ensure smooth operations.
