For our ELDs to be compliant, time must be captured to include seconds in the logs. The graph displays time in minutes and hours.

"2. FMCSA Response In response to comments, FMCSA changes the time to be captured in today’s rule to include seconds. Today’s rule requires an ELD to convert and track date and time—captured in UTC standard—to the time standard in effect at driver’s home terminal, taking the daylight savings time changes into account. An ELD must record the driver’s RODS using the time standard VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Dec 15, 2015 Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\16DER2.SGM 16DER2 tkelley on DSK9F6TC42PROD with RULES2 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 241 / Wednesday, December 16, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 78335 in effect at the driver’s home terminal for a 24-hour period beginning with the time specified by the motor carrier for that driver’s home terminal. The data element ‘‘Time Zone Offset from UTC’’ must be included in the ‘‘Driver’s Certification of Own Records’’ events as specified in section Time must be stored in UTC, and reported in carrier’s local time. If an ELD stored it in a different format that was translated to UTC, this would be acceptable. In today’s rule, FMCSA does not require the ELD to record State time. FMCSA does not believe that it is necessary for the ELD to record State time for HOS compliance. However, FMCSA does not prevent ELD providers from including State time as part of a compliant ELD. In regard to the comment on timing compliance monitoring, this section of the rule has been clarified per the requester’s suggestion and the rule no longer requires the ELD to cross check time if it uses GPS."

Additional Notes

We have the "ignore" feature which gives you the option to ignore a log so that it does not affect the driver’s HOS availability. Ignored logs will still be displayed on inspection reports and can still be transferred to the FMCSA when needed. This option can be found at the bottom of the "HOS Log Edit" page when a log is selected in Activity, HOS, Duty Status Logs.

For more information, please reach out to your local FMCSA office found Here.
