FMCSA revokes second ELD in a week

Feb. 9, 2023
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has revoked Nationwide ELD's certification, mandating users to switch to a compliant device within 60 days.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has removed the Nationwide ELD from its list of certified electronic logging devices, marking the second time in a week the government agency has revoked an ELD. On Jan. 31, the FMCSA revoked TMS One’s logging device, the ELD One.

FMCSA did not comment in its press release why Nationwide ELD is being revoked, stating only that the device doesn’t meet the requirements for ELDs as outlined in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. In the U.S., ELD providers self-certify their devices as compliant with federal standards. Regulators are currently reviewing if FMSCA should be responsible for certifying devices, which is how Transport Canada handles ELD certifications.

FMCSA instructed all Nationwide ELD users to cease using the device and to instead use logging software or paper logs. The device must be replaced by a compliant ELD before April 4, or drivers could be considered to be operating without an ELD and placed out-of-service.

Revocations of ELD certifications are relatively rare, with only four devices having been decertified by FMCSA since manufacturers began registering ELDs in February 2016. All other devices on the revoked list have been self-revocations.
