FMCSA revokes fourth ELD of 2023

March 27, 2023
The All-Ways Track ELD has been removed from the agency's list of compliant devices for not meeting regulations. The device is the latest in a spate of revocations since January.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has removed the All-Ways Track ELD from the list of registered electronic logging devices, the fourth since the beginning of the year.

ELD providers must self-certify if their device meets the requirements for ELDs outlined by the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. If the device is later found to be non-compliant, FMCSA removes it from its registry. FMCSA does not comment in its press releases the exact reason ELDs are removed.

FMCSA has placed the All-Ways Track ELD on the Revoked Devices list. The agency will email motor carriers that the device must stop being used, with trucking companies having to revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data. Carriers have 60 days—until May 26—to replace the All-Ways Track ELD with a compliant device.

Revocations of ELD certifications are uncommon, with only six devices having been decertified by FMCSA since manufacturers began registering ELDs in February 2016. Of those six devices, four have been revoked in 2023. In addition to the four revocations in 2023, FMCSA removed the ElDorado ELD from the approved list Sept. 7, 2022 and the ArionT ELD June 24, 2022. All other devices on the revoked list have been self-revocations.

If the ELD provider corrects all identified deficiencies, FMCSA will place the ELD back on the list of registered devices and inform the industry.

In the intervening period until May 26, FMCSA urges safety officials to not cite drivers using All-Ways Track ELDs. During this time, the agency suggests safety officials request the drivers' paper logs or logging software, or use the All-Ways Track ELD display as a back-up method to review hours of service data.

Beginning May 26, 2023, motor carriers who continue to use the revoked ELD listed above would be considered to be operating without an ELD. Safety officials will be able to place drivers out-of-service if they are using the device on or after May 26.
