Fleet Complete announced that its solution for recording drivers’ hours of service, BigRoad electronic logging device (ELD), is now officially third-party certified in Canada.
The solution was certified by FPInnovations, a third-party certification body with the ISO/IEC 17065 standard required by Transport Canada to test and certify ELD.
This third-party certification confirms that the BigRoad ELD solution meets all requirements outlined by the Canadian ELD Technical Standard to comply with the federal ELD mandate.
As of June 12, 2021, Transport Canada’s Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service (HOS) Regulations require all federally regulated motor carriers to be equipped with a compliant and certified ELD. Giving the industry time to adapt, full enforcement in Canada will begin on June 12, 2022.
“We have been providing our ELD solution to clients in North America for years, and we are very proud to support this Canadian government initiative for certified ELDs,” comments CEO of Fleet Complete, Tony Lourakis. “By assuring quality electronic logging devices on the market through rigorous third-party testing, we’re helping improve road safety for commercial drivers and the public.”
Fleet Complete’s BigRoad ELD solution has already been supporting Canadian Federal Cycle and Jurisdiction Enhancements, as well as Canadian ELD Personal Use and Yard Move. It also includes Canadian ELD output file requirements to provide complete support when stopped for a roadside inspection or asked to transfer record of duty status logs (RODS) to a safety official.
