UPDATED: PIT Group to measure, certify ELD compliance

October 31, 2016 by Dave Nesseth

ATLANTA, GA – Montreal-based PIT Group says it plans to offer independent compliance testing of Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) as fleets prepare to meet the new U.S. mandate for the devices by December 2017.

PIT Group director Yves Provencher says his organization will follow the latest version of the ELD Test Plan and Procedures issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

“In advance of the ELD mandate in the U.S., a growing number of suppliers are self-certifying ELDs,” said Yves Provencher, director of the PIT Group. “But suppliers that come to us for ELD verification will differentiate themselves in the market because our testing is thorough and unbiased, and it will cover the most up-to-date requirements in the ELD rule.”
