FMCSA Proposes Nearly Universal EOBR Regulation

The FMCSA today published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding Electronic Onboard Computers for the purpose of automating commercial drivers' hours of service recordkeeping.

From the rule summary:
"Under this proposal, all motor carriers currently required to maintain Records of Duty Status (RODS) for HOS recordkeeping would be required to use EOBRs to systematically and effectively monitor their drivers' compliance with HOS requirements. Additionally, this proposal sets forth the supporting documents that all motor carrierscurrently required to use RODS would still be required to obtain and keep,as required by section 113(a) of the Hazardous Materials TransportationAuthorization Act (HMTAA)."
