Highway Safety Programs; Model Specifications for Devices to 
Measure Breath Alcohol

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice amends the Conforming Products List for 
instruments that conform to the Model Specifications for Evidential 
Breath Testing Devices (58 FR 48705).

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 20, 1994.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mrs. Robin Mayer, Office of Alcohol 
and State Programs, NTS-21, National Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration, 400 Seventh Street SW., Washington, DC 20590; 
Telephone: (202) 366-9825.

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 a 
Conforming Products List (CPL) of instruments that were found to 
conform to the Model Specifications was published 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. The September 17, 1993, notice included, 
as Appendix A, a Conforming Products List (CPL) identifying those 
instruments found to conform with the Model Specifications.
    Since the last publication of the CPL, six (6) instruments have 
been evaluated and found to meet the model specifications, as amended 
on September 17, 1993, for mobile and non-mobile use: CMI, Inc.'s, 
Intoxilyzer 5000CD/FG5 and SD2; Intoximeters, Inc.'s Intox EC-IR and 
Alcomonitor CC; Life-Loc Inc.'s PBA 3000B; and National Draeger, Inc.'s 
Breathalyzer 7410. The designation of the National Draeger 
``Breathalyzer 7410'' represents a change in the model designation, 
from ``Alcotest 7410''.
    The Conforming Products List is therefore amended, as set forth 
below, to reflect the results of these evaluations. It identifies those 
instruments found to conform with the model specifications as amended 
in 58 FR 48705 (September 17, 1993), and also those instruments found 
to conform with the Model Specifications detailed in 49 FR 48854 
(December 14, 1984).
