Final Canadian ELD Mandate Rules Announced

The final Canadian electronic logging device (ELD) Mandate was announced today by Canadian Transport Minister Marc Garneau.

As expected, the rules state that ELD solution providers must obtain certification from a third-party to ensure their solutions meet the necessarily-complex technical standards set forth by Transport Canada.

After receiving feedback from various stakeholders (e.g., ELD providers, associations and carriers), Transport Canada worked to better harmonize the Canadian ELD Mandate with the ELD Mandate passed in the United States. This has allowed Transport Canada to accelerate the implementation of the Canadian ELD Mandate from the four years initially proposed in Gazette I down to two.

We will be posting more details on the Canadian ELD Mandate soon. In the meantime, read this summary of the rules provided by the Canadian Trucking Alliance.
