The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has formally withdrawn its regulation that would have mandated electronic onboard recorders for some carriers.

The action comes nine months after an appeals court blocked the mandate, which would have required EOBRs for about 5,700 carriers with the worst hours-of-service violations.

A supplementary proposal for the universal EOBR mandate, one that fits the harassment requirements, will come in late 2012 or early 2013, the agency said in February.
