FC_BR_ELD_Certification_LinkedIn_FB_Banner_1200x628Fleet Complete is proud to announce that our BigRoad electronic logging device (ELD) has received mandatory third-party ELD certification in Canada, adding us to Transport Canada’s List of Certified ELD Vendors.

We are honoured and privileged to serve this essential service industry throughout North America and beyond, as we continue our mission to bring transformative solutions to fleet-owning businesses.

ELD certification is essential due to Transport Canada’s Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service (HOS) Regulations - SOR/2005-313 that requires all federally-regulated motor carriers to be equipped with a compliant and certified ELD. Although this mandate went into effect on June 12, 2021, full enforcement in Canada will begin on June 12, 2022.

To comply with these regulations, BigRoad ELD was certified by FPInnovations, a third-party certification body with the ISO/IEC 17065 standard, required by Transport Canada to test and certify ELD. The certification marks our ELD’s full compliance with the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) Technical Standard for Electronic Logging Devices.

If you are currently managing HOS compliance with paper logs or are unsatisfied with your current electronic logging device provider, upgrading to our ELD is easy. Contact BigRoad Customer Support at 1-888-305-8777 to order an ELD-compliant device.

If you are currently deploying an Automatic Onboard Recording Device (AOBRD) or Electronic Recording Device (ERD), please refer to How To Switch From AOBRD To ELD to ‘Enable ELD’ in your device. This allows you to easily upgrade your hardware for ELD capability and download the most recent Canada HOS rules.

BigRoad ELD solution is part of Fleet Complete’s connected operations platform, which includes fleet telematics, mobile workforce technology, video-based safety solutions, fleet and asset tracking, and more. You can count on Fleet Complete as a trusted and respected business partner to continuously release new features for our solutions to further improve your operations.
