To ensure that the list of self-certified electronic logging devices (ELDs) is current, ELD providers must notify FMCSA of any major changes to their device. What constitutes a major change to an ELD?
If the provider makes a change that would cause any of the registered ELD values to change, an update to the ELD registration must be made; updated information will be reviewed by FMCSA to ensure all required registration information is included. The provider can also determine the best route for making this change—either updating a current listing, or registering a new ELD.
Note: Any change that results in an update to the ELD Identifier or provider public/private key pair must be reflected on the ELD registration website.
