What is the difference between “paper records of duty status (RODS)” and printouts of RODS from electronic logging devices (ELDs)?
“Paper RODS” means RODS that are not kept on an ELD, but that are either recorded manually (in accordance with 49 CFR 395.8(f)) or on a computer not synchronized with the vehicle or that is otherwise not qualified to be an ELD. Printouts of RODS from ELDs are the reports that ELDs must be able to generate upon request from an authorized safety official, per section 4.8.1 of the ELD rule.
