The technical specifications from the ELD Rule are codified in Appendix A to Subpart B of part 395 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. ELD manufacturers are required to selfcertify that their devices comply with the ELD Rule and register the devices with FMCSA. Motor carriers subject to the ELD Rule were required to operate registered ELDs by the compliance date of December 18, 2017. However, motor carriers that operated with automatic onboard recording devices (AOBRDs) prior to December 18, 2017, and that are subject to the ELD Rule, have until December 16, 2019, to transition from AOBRDs to ELDs. A list of self-certified and registered ELDs can be found at https://eld.fmcsa.dot.gov/list. Meeting Information This meeting is intended for representatives of ELD vendors to present questions and discuss issues related to the transition from AOBRDs to ELDs, to discuss the data transfer process and related technical questions, and present other issues unique to the ELD vendor community.
