Access a chart indicating what is required for an ELD to be IRP and IFTA compliant versus for reporting hours of service.

An Electronic Logging Device (ELD) is an electronic device designed to comply with FMCSA’s criteria to accurately record a driver's driving time for hours of service compliance.

IRP and the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) each allow the use of electronic devices to document vehicle distance by jurisdiction, provided the required supporting data are maintained for audit purposes. See the above chart for some of the key differences and similarities between an ELD and a compliant IFTA/IRP electronic records device.
