Update on National Working Group on Animal Transport
January 11, 2023 | Documents
NCFA has been leading work with the National Working Group on Animal Transport as it relates to electronic logging devices for commercial vehicle drivers.
As of January, enforcement actions are being taken on the Regulations Amending the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations (Electronic Logging Devices and Other Amendments). This can create an impossible position where livestock transporters either comply with hours-of-service regulations or do what they know is best for the humane and safe transportation of live animals. We are calling upon the federal government to create regulatory flexibility so that transporters can safeguard the welfare of the livestock being transported due to unforeseen delays during transport which cause drivers to go over duty hours.
