The Dec 18th ELD compliance deadline for the ELD mandate is fast approaching. Are you ready for compliance? Drivers who don’t comply starting in December could potentially face fines or receive violation points in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA), Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) safety compliance and enforcement program.Our FieldMaster Logs application adds Hours of Service (HOS) and Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) functionality which is fully compliant with FMCSA regulations. FieldMaster Logs tracks driver activity, provides clear communication to the driver about hours remaining, and gives robust reports to managers to measure their driver’s activity and availability. Using FieldMaster Log’s DVIR features ensures that drivers perform safety inspections of their vehicle and that vehicle issues are captured and communicated to the maintenance team.
All drivers must deploy either an AOBRD or ELD solution by December 18, 2017. If a driver has an existing AOBRD device, they will have until December 2019 before needing to upgrade to an ELD certified device.
The chart below shows some of the key deadlines and how the rollout will be done in phases.
