Electronic Signatures on Documents: Verigo, Incorporated (Verigo), Application for Exemption
Document Number: E7-23245
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-11-30
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The FMCSA announces that it has received from Verigo, Incorporated (Verigo) an application for an exemption from the signature requirement for a driver on the record of duty status (RODS). Verigo's application is being made on behalf of all drivers and carriers operating commercial motor vehicles in the U.S. and using the Verigo Wireless Logbook. The exemption would allow a signature entered on an electronic ``signature pad'' to be the functional equivalent of a handwritten signature on the RODS. Verigo states that this will allow the trucking industry to reduce administrative costs and increase productivity by providing a simple and effective alternative to paper RODS. The FMCSA requests public comment on Verigo's application for exemption.
