Final ELD Rule Not Expected Until Late 2015

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration does not expect to publish its final rule mandating the use of electronic logging devices (ELDs) for carriers until Sept. 30, 2015, the agency said in its November significant rulemakings report.

The rule would not be effective until two years after it is finalized.

The delayed mandate is in addition to other regulatory projections affecting truckers like the a carrier safety fitness determination rule to replace the current SafeStat system using Compliance, Safety, Accountability data to rate carriers as satisfactory, conditional or unsatisfactory, expected to publish in April 2015.

FMCSA also expects to issue its final drug and alcohol clearinghouse rule Oct. 30, 2015, and a final rule prohibiting the coercion of drivers by carriers and brokers on Sept. 10, 2015.
