SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On November 5, 1973, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published the Standards for Devices to Measure Breath Alcohol (38 FR 30459). A Qualified Products List of Evidential Breath Measurement Devices comprised of instruments that met this standard was first issued on November 21, 1974 (39 FR 41399).

On December 14, 1984 (49 FR 48854), NHTSA converted this standard to Model Specifications for Evidential Breath Testing Devices, and published a conforming Products List (CPL) of instruments that were found to conform to the Model Specifications as Appendix D to that notice (49 FR 48864).

On September 17, 1993, NHTSA published a notice (58 FR 48705) to amend the Model Specifications. The notice changed the alcohol concentration levels at which instruments are evaluated, from 0.000, 0.050, 0.101, and 0.151 BAC, to 0.000, 0.020, 0.040, 0.080, and 0.160 BAC; added a test for the presence of acetone; and expanded the definition of alcohol to include other low molecular weight alcohols including methyl or isopropyl. On June 4, 1999, the most recent amendment to the Conforming Products List (CPL) was published (64 FR 30097), identifying those instruments found to conform with the Model Specifications.

Since the last publication of the CPL, two (2) instruments have been evaluated and found to meet the model specifications, as amended on September 17, 1993, for mobile and Start Printed Page 45420non-mobile use. They are: (1) Intoxilyzer 400PA manufactured by CMI, Inc. of Owensboro, KY. This device is a hand-held breath tester with a fuel cell alcohol sensor. (2) Alco Sensor IV-XL manufactured by Intoximeters, Inc. of St. Louis, MO. This device is a hand-held breath tester with a fuel cell alcohol sensor that is microprocessor controlled. It is designed to minimize operator involvement in performing the test and processing the test data.

The CPL has been amended to add these two instruments to the list.

In accordance with the foregoing, the CPL is therefore amended, as set forth below.
