FMCSA Talks Extension on Parts of the ELDT Rule
According to a spokesman with FMCSA, “FMCSA anticipates seeking an extension of some provisions of the ELDT rule in order to gather additional feedback from the states and make the implementation as effective as possible.”
It was said that there are technical issues in transmitting the information from the self-certified program administrators to the state licensing agencies and FMCSA.
FMCSA plans to continue implementing the rule with the effective date of February 7, 2020, however, how the state licensing agencies will verify completion of the training program could change until the system issues have been resolved.
