Compliance Date for Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) is Monday, December 18
In just five short days, the requirement to install and use Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) for compliance with Hours of Service (HOS) regulations goes into effect. On Monday, December 18, 2017, eligible commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers will need to install and use ELDs for compliance with HOS regulations; however, specific only to the ready mixed concrete industry, there is a workable solution for not being required to install and use ELDs. Specifically, ELDs are not needed if a mixer driver does not work more than 14 hours, more than 8 days in any 30-day period.
To find out exactly how this works and what a company may need to do to avoid ELD use, please review NRMCA’s ELD Guidance materials here and also here. For more information on ELDs, ELD requirements, FMCSA Registered ELDs and more, click here. You may also contact Gary Mullings or Kevin Walgenbach.
