ELD FAQ 71: ELDs Canada & Mexico FAQ – Technical Specifications – Q3

Q3:  Can a Canada/Mexico domiciled motor carrier’s driver use electronic logging software, installed on cellular phones, tablets or personal computers, which does not meet the technical specifications of the ELD rule?

 A3:  No. Under 49 CFR 395.22(a), if the driver is subject to the ELD rule, the driver must use an ELD that is listed on FMCSA’s registered ELD list, https://eld.fmcsa.dot.gov/List. The list includes self-certified and registered ELDs and registered ELD software that can be installed on a portable device.
