Revoked Devices: Falcon ELD and KSK ELD
- The Falcon ELD and KSK ELD have been added to the ‘Revoked Devices’ list
- Trucking companies must replace these devices with compliant ones by Nov. 13
- Non-compliance may result in penalties and potential disruptions to operations
In a surprising turn of events, the Falcon ELD and KSK ELD have found themselves on the ‘Revoked Devices’ list. This means that trucking companies using these electronic logging devices (ELDs) must replace them with compliant devices by November 13. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has taken this step to ensure the accuracy and reliability of ELD systems used in the industry.
Failure to comply with this requirement may result in penalties and potential disruptions to operations. Trucking companies should take immediate steps to replace their Falcon ELD and KSK ELD devices with ones that meet the FMCSA’s standards. This will not only help them avoid legal troubles but also ensure the smooth running of their business.
Why are the Falcon ELD and KSK ELD Revoked?
The FMCSA has determined that the Falcon ELD and KSK ELD do not meet the required specifications necessary for accurate and reliable recording of a driver’s hours of service. The main purpose of ELDs is to eliminate the use of paper logbooks, reduce the risk of hours-of-service violations, and improve overall safety on the road. Unfortunately, these devices have failed to meet the FMCSA’s standards, leading to their revocation.
The FMCSA’s decision to revoke these devices is crucial for maintaining the integrity of the trucking industry. With accurate and reliable ELDs in place, trucking companies can ensure compliance with hours-of-service regulations. This not only promotes safety but also contributes to fair competition within the industry.
The revocation of the Falcon ELD and KSK ELD devices serves as a reminder that the trucking industry must constantly strive for excellence and compliance. Safety should always be a top priority, and the FMCSA’s actions demonstrate their commitment to upholding these standards. Trucking companies now have the opportunity to replace these non-compliant devices with ones that meet the FMCSA’s requirements, ensuring smoother operations and improved road safety. Let’s adapt, improve, and keep on trucking!
