...Advocacy Success: federal phased-in approach to ELD enforcement

....Advocacy Success:

Transport Canada Announcement for
a Phased-In Approach to
Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Enforcement

 
PSAC is pleased to report that aligned with our advocacy efforts, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, Federal Minister of Transport has announced that the Canadian Federal ELD Mandate, coming into force on June 12, 2021 will begin with an enforcement roll out that involves education and awareness only. This will give sufficient time for industry to obtain and install certified ELDs without penalty.

PSAC applauds this announcement and the decision taken by the Minister of Transport.  It is important to continue moving forward on important safety initiatives such as the upcoming Federal ELD mandate and our members have been supportive of these changes. Our concerns have been with the implementation of the ELD regulations, in particular the delays in establishing an accredited certification body for ELDs and the impact that will have on the overall implementation strategy of these regulations. Our members are eager to move forward in their efforts to meet the regulation requirements but want to be sure their investments in ELDs meet the certification requirements.
PSAC and has long advocated the position that, with no certified devices currently on Transport Canada’s list of approved devices, additional time is necessary to effectively implement the ELD mandate. Additional time will allow more ELD vendors to prepare and submit their products for certification and provide members more time to pick from an adequate list of approved devices that meet the unique features required by the oil and gas services sector such as satellite access for remote locations and recognition of the Federal Oil Well Service Vehicle Cycle Exemption Permit.
 
PSAC will continue to work with Transport Canada, the Canadian Council of Transport Ministers, the Provinces and other stakeholders to develop a phased in road map that meets the needs of industry and government alike.
