FMCSA regulations require registration and certification of all ELDs.  Any Electronic Logging Device that hasn't been registered and certified by the manufacturer is not FMCSA compliant.  GPSTab ELD is compliant and can be found on the official list of registered devices: FMCSA list

If you are currently exempt from filling out logs - short haul / local driver - you don't need to get an ELD.  Other exemptions include operating vehicles: made before 2000, classified as drive-away, classified as tow-away.  You can find more information by visiting: FMCSA website

As of 11/06/2017, there has been no announcements from FMCSA about postponing initial compliance dates that were set when the ELD Mandate was released.  However, the 10-hour out-of-service order associated with non-compliance with the Mandate will begin April 1, 2018.
