The ELD Exceptions and Exemptions will not be affected by the Dec. 16, 2019 ELD Deadline
All exceptions and exemptions to the ELD rule will remain in effect, regardless of the December 16 deadline.
After December 16, 2019, full compliance with the ELD rule is required. This means that, after this date, motor carriers and drivers subject to the ELD rule must use self-certified ELDs that are registered with FMCSA to record, certify, and present their hours-of-service data.
Exceptions and Exemptions to the ELD Rule Will Remain in Effect.
The ELD exceptions delineated in the ELD rule and the ELD exemptions announced by FMCSA will not be impacted by the December 16 deadline. Motor carriers and drivers who operate under these exceptions and exemptions will continue to be able to use alternate methods of record-keeping after ELD full compliance goes into effect.
