FMCSA requires ELD providers to certify that their solutions meet the regulation requirements. How can you be sure that the ELD solutions registered on the FMCSA are in fact compliant?
Make sure that your solution is compliant.
Since 2007, the trucking industry has come to PIT Group with a very similar concern: How can we be sure that the vendor claims whether they be aerodynamics or other technologies be as good as what the supplier claims? Similar question, similar answer!
PIT Group’s Energotest became the industry standard to measure green technology performance. It is natural that the industry turned to PIT Group for ELD verification. ELD suppliers can now rely on PIT Group to demonstrate that the verification process was thorough and 3rd party verified.
The PIT Group ELD verification program is a systematic process that monitors that tests were performed according to the FMCSA requirements. ELD suppliers that are successfully verified will obtain a certificate of compliance along with the authorization to refer to PIT Group as their third-party verification service on their marketing material.

Fleets are looking for ways to reduce their risk in choosing an ELD supplier. The consequences of a non-compliant product being self-certified are too great. PIT Groups’, third-party verification of compliance is the assurance that fleets are seeking. PIT Group’s extensive expertise in ELD regulations in Canada and US, along with their rich history of testing puts PIT Group in a perfect position to expertly evaluate ELD solutions.
The worse thing that could happen is that a fleet purchases, installs, trains drivers and managers, and collects HOS records on a system that is later found to be non-compliant. In that case, your fleet would have eight days to deploy a new system.
Knowing that your ELD system has been verified as compliant provides extra assurance and reduces the fleet risk.
