When should a driver certify his or her record of duty status (RODS) on the electronic logging device (ELD) to avoid malfunction codes?

FMCSA recommends that drivers first certify their RODS before logging off the ELDs and then shutting down their CMVs’ engines. If drivers don’t follow this recommendation, malfunction codes may occur, such as indicating unaccounted odometer changes and suspicious driving activity.
