ADDITIONAL COMMENT PERIOD OPEN REGARDING THE ELD MANDATE

ADDITIONAL COMMENT PERIOD OPEN REGARDING THE ELD MANDATE

Important Notice Regarding the ELD Mandate

ELD Mandate - New Comment Period Opened by FMCSA. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has opened a comment period regarding an exemption request for small businesses. We encourage everyone the ELD Mandate will impact to take advantage of this opportunity to voice their concerns. The comment period was opened due to an exemption request submitted to the FMCSA by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA). The OOIDA is seeking a five-year exemption for the compliance with the ELD mandate for small trucking companies. This exemption would apply to small businesses that show less than $27.5 million in yearly revenue.

According to the information on the FMCSA website, the OOIDA asserts that this exemption, “…would allow small business motor carriers to maintain their current practices that have resulted in a proven safety record. The term of the requested exemption, if granted, is for five years, subject to renewal upon application.” The OOIDA is one group of a long list that have spoken out against the ELD Mandate.

We have compiled a list of the variety of groups, lawmakers and public officials that have voiced their concerns and sent letters. That list can be found on our website here
