Titan GPS’ Commitment to ELD Certification: A letter from our CSO

The Canadian Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) mandate continues to evolve, and it’s important our community understand we are committed to certification.

As a brief recap, the mandate was first announced in June 2019 with a June 12, 2021 enforcement deadline. That enforcement deadline shifted to become the start of a progressive enforcement period, whereby the provinces and territories support the mandate through “education and awareness,” with ELDs encouraged, but not required. Drivers are not subject to penalties until full enforcement goes into effect on June 12, 2022, at which point ELDs will be mandatory.

The ultimate goal of the mandate is road safety. By taking measures to reduce commercial driver fatigue, Transport Canada has calculated that mandatory ELDs will reduce the risk of fatigue-related collisions by about 10%, while simultaneously reducing administrative burdens like maintaining paper daily logs and the time enforcement officers need to verify compliance.

As far as third-party certification goes, FPInnovations was selected in the fall of 2020 as the first body to certify ELDs in Canada, and then in June of 2021, the CSA Group became the second official certification body.

Titan GPS submitted for ELD certification with FPInnovations in early March – ahead of much of the industry. In June we doubled down our efforts with the understanding that our community is looking to us as their strategic partner to guide them through ELD migration. We anticipate receiving certification. We will continue to build trust through transparency with timely and thorough communication around our company’s certification process.

Until then, contact us if you’d like to speak with one of our in-house ELD experts. We’re here for you.

 

Sincerely,

Dave Staples,

Chief Sales Officer
