Enforcement of Federal Electronic Logging Device Mandate to Begin

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), a group designed to provide uniformity in the enforcement of trucking regulations by local, state, and federal officials, recently announced that it would begin the enforcement of the federal electronic logging mandate on December 18, 2017. Inspectors will begin issuing citations on that date to drivers that do not have an electronic logging device. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) required such devices in a final rule issued in 2015. Drivers who utilize the timecard exception or who operate vehicles manufactured before 2000 are among those exempt from complying with the electronic logging rule. There are numerous other exemptions as well.

On April 1, 2018, the 10-hour out of service order related to electronic logging will also begin. The delay in the enforcement of the out-of-service order is intended to allow extra time for drivers and companies to adjust to the new requirements before resulting in vehicles being placed out of service.
