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.

On September 17, 1993, NHTSA published a notice to amend the Model Specifications (58 FR 48705) and to 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, respectively. 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 alcohol 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 December 17, 2007 (72 FR 71480).

The CPL published today adds four (4) new instruments and updates the mobility status of one (1) existing instrument that have been evaluated and found to conform to the Model Specifications, as amended on September 17, 1993, for mobile and non-mobile use. This update also makes minor changes to instrument names and a change to a company location. In alphabetical order by company, they are:

(1) The “Alcotest 7510” manufactured by Draeger Safety, Inc., Irving, Texas. This is a hand-held instrument intended for use in stationary or roadside operations. It uses a fuel cell detector and is battery powered.

(2) The “Alcotest 9510” manufactured by Draeger Safety, Inc., Irving, Texas. This instrument previously conformed to the model specifications and was listed as a stationary device. After further testing, this instrument conforms to the specifications for stationary or roadside operations. This instrument is portable with a detachable carrying handle. It can be powered by either 110 volts AC or 12 volts DC, such as from a car battery. The Alcotest 9510 uses fuel cell and infra-red type sensors.

(3) The “Alco-Sensor V” manufactured by Intoximeters, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri. This is a hand-held instrument intended for use in stationary or roadside operations. It uses a fuel cell detector and is battery powered.

(4) The “Evidenzer” manufactured by Nanopuls AB, Uppsala, Sweden. This instrument is intended for use in stationary or roadside operations. The Evidenzer is a non-dispersive infra-red device that is powered by either 120 volts AC power or 12 volts DC, such as from a car battery.

(5) The “Mark V Alcovisor” manufactured by PAS International, Fredericksburg, Virginia. This is a hand-held instrument that uses a fuel cell detector and is battery powered.

Minor changes include adding “Intox” before or in the name of EC/IR instruments by Intoximeters. Draeger Safety, Inc. address changed from Durango, Colorado to Irving, Texas.

The CPL has been updated to include the five instruments and the minor changes identified above.

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