FMCSA removes Falcon ELD, KSK ELD from list of registered devices

Beginning November 13, 2023, motor carriers who continue to use the revoked devices listed above will be considered to be operating without an ELD.

The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has removed Falcon ELD and KSK ELD from the list of registered Electronic Logging Devices (ELD). FMCSA announced that it has placed these ELDs on the Revoked Devices list due to the providers’ failure to meet FMCSA’s minimum requirements. This is effective Sept. 14.

FMCSA is informing fleets and motor carriers that all who use these revoked ELDs must take the following steps:

  1. Discontinue using the revoked ELDs and revert to paper logs or logging software to record required hours of service data.
  2. Replace the revoked ELDs with compliant ELDs from the Registered Devices list before Nov. 13, 2023.

Motor carriers have up to 60 days to replace the revoked ELDs with compliant ELDs. If the ELD providers correct all identified deficiencies, FMCSA says it will place the ELDs back on the list of registered devices and inform the industry and the field.

During this time, safety officials are encouraged not to cite drivers using the revoked ELDs for 395.8(a)(1) – “No record of duty status” or 395.22(a) – “Failing to use a registered ELD.” Instead, safety officials should request the driver’s paper logs, logging software, or use the ELD display as a back-up method to review the hours of service data, FMCSA says.

Beginning Nov. 13, motor carriers who continue to use the revoked devices listed above will be considered to be operating without an ELD, according to the administration, and drivers will be placed out-of-service (OOS).

Most who read the data only read the direct data and not the indirect data breakdown. And most shops do not pay attention to the indirect data, so therefore it is a good, appropriate question.
