FMCSA to hold public meeting on ELD

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced a public meeting on electronic log technical specs to be held on May 9 at the U.S. Department of Transportation in Washington, D.C.

According to the Notice in the Federal Register, this meeting will be a
forum for discussion of the minimum requirements for ELDs and is being held to help manufacturers produce ELDs that will comply with the ELD Rule.

Questions for the meeting are to be submitted in advance to ELD@dot.gov.

The ELD final rule compliance deadline is Dec. 18 and motor carriers are required to use a certified electronic logging device. The agency is not reviewing the devices for compliance and has asked manufacturers to self-certify.
