ELD FAQ 49: Electronic Logging Devices and Hours of Service – Editing and Annotations
Frequently Asked Questions: Electronic Logging Devices and Hours of Service – Editing and Annotations
Question: Who is responsible for the accuracy of records of duty status in regards to the editing and certification rights of drivers and motor carriers?
Guidance: Although the ELD reflects the driver’s RODS, the driver and carrier share responsibility for the accuracy of the records. The driver certification is intended, in part, to protect drivers from unilateral changes. However, if the driver is unavailable or unwilling to recertify the record, the carrier’s proposed edit and annotation would remain part of the record.
