FMCSA clarifies ELD compliance extensions, non-compliant devices

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration last week issued new guidance on the use of older logging devices that, while lacking compliance with the agency’s electronic logging device stipulations, afford carriers two extra years — until December 2019 — to fully comply with the ELD mandate.

That’s two additional years beyond the Dec. 18, 2017, compliance date for the ELD mandate.
