||According to the FMCSA, Record of Duty Status (RODS) should be signed and certified at the end of each 24-hour period. When using an ELD, it becomes even more important to follow this rule closely. If a driver forgets to certify logs on a regular basis, you could risk losing that data. Uncertified logs are only kept in the system for 8 days. Certified logs, however, are kept for 6 months. Keeping logs certified and accurate will alleviate violations and lost logs. This course covers the log certification process.
