[Docket No. FMCSA-2010-0167]
Electronic Logging Devices and Hours of Service Supporting Documents
AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.
ACTION: Supplemental notice of proposed rule-making; request for comments.
SUMMARY: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) proposes
amendments to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to establish:
Minimum performance and design standards for hours-of-service (HOS) electronic
logging devices (ELDs); requirements for the mandatory use of these devices by drivers
currently required to prepare HOS records of duty status (RODS); requirements
concerning HOS supporting documents; and measures to address concerns about
harassment resulting from the mandatory use of ELDs. This rule-making supplements the
Agency’s February 1, 2011, Notice of Proposed Rule-making (NPRM) and addresses
issues raised by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in its 2011 decision
vacating the Agency’s April 5, 2010, final rule concerning ELDs as well as subsequent
statutory developments. The proposed requirements for ELDs would improve compliance
with the HOS rules.
