Electronic Logging Device Mandate Update: In December of 2015 the FMCSA published its final rule mandating ELD’s in the USA. After a 2-year phase in period, baring any successful legal challenges, it will become mandatory in the United States on December 18th of this year. In February of 2016 Transport Canada announced they were also mandating ELD’s for federally regulated Canadian Carriers. Transport Canada indicated originally the proposal would be posted in Canada Gazette Part 1 in December of 2016, which was then pushed back to late spring of 2017. As of the date of this release, we are still awaiting publication of the proposal.  In this presentation, Mike Millian, the President of the PMTC, will provide attendees with the latest updates on both sides of the border as well as the latest indicated timelines for Compliance and Grandfather dates.
