What happens if an electronic logging device (ELD) is found to be non-compliant after it is in use?

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.

Did this answer your question? If not, please email ELD@dot.gov or call 1-800-832-5660 for more information.
