The mandate includes two crucial deadlines that everyone in the trucking industry should remember.
Those who are not exempted to the mandate needs to be ELD compliant by this date. However, those who installed compliant AOBRDs at the time the final rule was enacted have until late 2019 to be ELD compliant.
Everyone in the trucking industry that isn’t part of the exemption needs to be ELD compliant on or before this date. This date is also commonly known as the “Grandfather clause”, and AOBRDs will no longer be accepted after December 16, 2019. Only ELDs will be accepted for compliance.
