Two ELDs Removed from FMCSA Registered Devices List

FMCSA has removed two ELDs from the list of registered Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs).

Motor carriers and drivers using FALCON ELDs and KSK ELDs have 60 days to replace them with compliant ELDs.

On September 14, 2023, FMCSA removed the following ELDs from the list of registered ELDs due to the providers’ failure to meet the minimum requirements established in 49 CFR part 395, subpart B, appendix A.

These ELDs now appear on FMCSA’s Revoked Devices list.

Motor carriers and drivers who use the ELDs listed above must take the following actions:

  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 November 13, 2023.


Motor carriers have up to 60 days to replace the revoked ELDs with compliant ELDs.


Motor carriers and drivers who continue to use the revoked ELDs listed above on or after November 13, 2023, will be in violation of 49 CFR 395.8(a)(1)—“No record of duty status” and drivers will be placed out-of-service in accordance with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) OOS Criteria.

If the ELD providers correct all identified deficiencies for their devices, FMCSA will place the ELDs back on the Registered Devices list and inform the industry and the field. However, FMCSA strongly encourages motor carriers to take the actions listed above now to avoid compliance issues in the event that these deficiencies are not addressed in time.
