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 (Model Specifications), 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 to amend the Model Specifications (58 FR 48705) and update the CPL. That 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. These devices are identified on the CPL with an asterisk. Additionally, that notice includes a test for the presence of acetone and an expanded definition of Start Printed Page 71481alcohol to include other low molecular weight alcohols; e.g., methyl or isopropyl. Thereafter, NHTSA has periodically updated the CPL with those breath instruments found to conform to the Model Specifications. The most recent update to the CPL was published June 29, 2006 (71 FR 37159).

The CPL published today adds 6 instruments that have been evaluated and found to conform to the Model Specifications, as amended on September 17, 1993, for mobile and non-mobile use. In alphabetical order by company, they are:

(1) Intoxilyzer 240 (aka: Lion Alcolmeter 400+, outside U.S.) manufactured by CMI, Inc., Owensboro, Kentucky. This is a handheld device intended for use in stationary or roadside operations. It uses a fuel cell sensor and is powered by 5 “AA” batteries.

(2) The “Alcotest 9510” manufactured by Draeger Safety, Inc., Durango, Colorado. This is a bench-top device intended for use in a stationary setting. It is AC-powered and has dual sensors. The Alcotest 9510 uses both a fuel cell sensor and a 9-micron infra-red type sensor to measure mouth alcohol.

(3) The “AlcoQuant 6020” manufactured by EnviteC by Honeywell GmbH, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. This is a handheld device intended for use in stationary or roadside operations. It uses a fuel cell sensor and is powered by 4 “AA” batteries.

(4) The “EC-IR-II (Enhanced with serial numbers above 10,000)” manufactured by Intoximeters, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri. This is a bench-top, dual sensor device intended for stationary operations, and it is AC powered. This EC-IR-II uses a fuel cell sensor to determine breath alcohol concentration. The device also uses an infra-red type sensor to screen for mouth alcohol. The original EC-IR-II design was modified to incorporate additional test memory capacity, additional hardware to allow recirculation of a wet bath simulator, and enhanced EMC and RFI immunity. This model with the enhancements has an external and internal printer production option available.

(5) The “Phoenix 6.0” manufactured by Lifeloc Technologies, Inc., Wheat Ridge, Colorado. This is a handheld device that uses a fuel cell sensor and is powered by an internal battery. It is intended for stationary or roadside operations. The Phoenix 6.0 has the same core electronics, fuel cell, pump, and algorithms as the Lifeloc EV30. Enhancements of the Phoenix 6.0 include high resolution display, wireless printing, barometric pressure sensor (to assist with dry gas calibrations), and Easy ModeTM software to guide the user through the DOT testing protocol.

(6) The “ALC-PRO II (US)”, manufactured by Tokai-Denshi, Inc., Tokyo, Japan. This device is a handheld battery-powered breath tester with a fuel cell sensor. The breath tester is connected to a 10.5″ by 7.5″ by 5″ AC powered analytical unit. It is intended for stationary or roadside operations.

The CPL has been updated to include the six instruments identified above.

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