Samsara’s electronic logging device is now certified in Canada and compliant with the country’s federal ELD mandate.
Samsara’s ELD, comprised of its Vehicle Gateways and Driver App, has been tested and certified by a third-party certification body accredited by Transport Canada to ensure that the ELD conforms to the requirements of Canada’s Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations.
While the Canadian ELD mandate went into effect in June 2021, the government has taken a progressive approach to enforcement to provide sufficient time for the industry to obtain and install certified ELDs without penalty.
Existing Samsara customers can now choose to activate mandate-specific ELD features at any time during the progressive enforcement period, which is scheduled to end on June 12, 2022.
Any future updates to Samsara’s ELD solution in observance of Canada’s ELD mandate will be deployed over the air, with no new hardware required. This enables Samsara customers to remain compliant without any downtime or disruption to their operations, Samsara officials said in a press release.
As an integral part of Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud, this certified ELD solution offers intuitive driver workflows and real-time insights that enable commercial fleets to streamline HOS management, digitize paperwork, improve driver safety and productivity, and increase operational efficiency.
