How do I know if my current system is going to be compliant with the new ELD mandate?
ELD suppliers (such as Telogis) are working through the final specifications for the new devices. Telogis is working with hardware manufacturers to confirm that existing devices meet the new ELD specifications or make any minor changes required.
In the interim, fleet owners will be able to continue purchasing and using 395.15-compliant devices (AOBRD) that will be valid until December 2019. This is referred to as the grandfather clause.
Alternatively, fleets can continue to use paper logs until December 2017, after which time they will need to start using the new ELDs.
