Are you prepared for an FMCSA safety audit? Is your company accumulating undesirable CSA scores and facing possible fines? Have you received a mandate letter to bring your fleet in line with current safety regulations? As a business owner, fleet manager, or safety manager, you already have your hands full. So, where do you start with compliance?
Dave Kraft, Director of Business Development, Qualcomm
As you may know, the federal regulatory environment surrounding electronic on-board recorders (EOBRs) continues to evolve. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has allowed the use of automatic on-board recording device EOBRs to track drivers' hours of service since 1988. Despite the ongoing debate over mandating the devices, the productivity benefits are becoming more compelling. There is a current FMCSA initiative to update the regulations for EOBRs and expand their coverage to address audit standards, position archiving requirements, roadside inspection procedures, and more.

We are here to help you today – and tomorrow, as the industry adapts to changing requirements. According to Dave Kraft, director of industry affairs:
While there may be some resistance to the required changes, in order to achieve the shift to a new enforcement paradigm, resources and programs must stay focused on the force multiplier opportunities and making the right choices in enforcement strategies and resource deployments… As the past year reflected significant momentum in support of the mandate for electronic driver log systems, the next year may be about accelerating its effective implementation.
