    EOBR/ELD Proposal Advances from FMCSA to DOT Secretary’s Office


    No matter if you call them electronic on-board recorders, electronic logging devices, or black boxes, a proposal to mandate their use is slowly winding its was through the bureaucratic hands of the federal government, putting it closer to publication.


    http://www.truckinginfo.com/channel/owner-operators/news/story/2013/06/eobr-eld-proposal-advances-from-fmcsa-to-dot-secretary-s-office.aspx

    http://www.fleetequipmentmag.com/mandated-eobrs-elds/

    Electronic onboard recorders (EOBRs)—or electronic logging devices (ELDs), as they are now being called—installed in commercial vehicles can monitor and record a whole host of data about a vehicle and its driver. And because ELDs are the subject of a pending mandate that will require them for tracking hours of service (HOS), fleets are beginning to pay very close attention.
    Since they track much more than HOS—electronic vehicle inspection reports; driver behavior reporting on speeding, idling and hard braking; and integrated map and route solutions, to name a few—many fleets have adopted ELDs ahead of the mandate in order to reap a multitude of benefits.


    “The effective date for enforcement of the mandate is two years after issuance of the final rule, most likely later in 2016—this is to allow the suppliers to update software to meet the compliance of the new regulation,” Schenk adds.
    Omnitracs’ Kraft explains that part of the reason for the lengthy schedule is the extensive scope of the EOBR mandate rulemaking. Key areas to be addressed in the upcoming proposed rule include:
    • ELD mandate and requirements for these systems as directed in MAP-21.
    • Technical performance requirements that were addressed in a prior 395.16 EOBR rulemaking—with several updates recommended by the Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee.
    • New guidelines to mitigate the potential for driver harassment as required in response to prior litigation.
    • Additional requirements for compliance records management by the carrier’s support system, based on a previous proposed rulemaking that was delayed.
    “While it’s hard to determine a final implementation date, I can note that once the final rule is ready the industry will need 12-18 months to develop and bring certified products to market,” Kraft says. “Then, once the products are available, it is expected the industry will need an additional 24-36 months to implement EOBRs into more than two million trucks that have not already installed one. We also expect a transition provision that allows carriers that have implemented current EOBR systems in advance of the final rule to continue the use of those systems for their remaining useful life.”

    Well you might as well hang up the keys because it will happen. Either adapt or find another career.

    I'm missing something here ...we've been running E logs for the past two years.

    So they are going to mandate what we already have in the trucks ?

    i don't understand the drama in this thread
