Frequently Asked Questions

The ELD rule includes a procedure to remove a listed registered device from the FMCSA website, to provide additional assurance to motor carriers that ELDs on the vendor registration website are compliant. This procedure also protects an ELD vendor’s interest in its product.

FMCSA may initiate removal of an ELD model or version from the list in accordance with section 5.4 in the ELD rule, by providing written notice to the ELD provider stating: (a) The reasons the FMCSA proposes to remove the model or version from the FMCSA list; and (b) Any corrective action that the ELD provider must take for the ELD model or version to remain on the list.

No, ELD vendors/manufacturers are not required to notify motor carriers if a device has been removed from the ELD registration list. However, FMCSA will maintain on its website a list of devices that are removed from the list, and will make every effort to ensure that industry is aware.

As a motor carrier, you will have 8 days from notification to replace your noncompliant device with a compliant one. This is the same time allowed to take action on ELDs that need to be repaired, replaced, or serviced. In the event of a widespread issue, FMCSA will work with affected motor carriers to establish a reasonable timeframe for replacing non-compliant devices with ELDs that meet the requirements.

Since February 16, 2016, ELD system suppliers have been able to self-certify and register devices with the FMCSA through the following link: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/hours-service/elds/equipment-registration.
