Equipment to Determine Blood Alcohol Content
[34 Pa.B. 4204]
The Department of Health (Department) has approved the following equipment for determining alcohol content of the blood by analysis of a person's breath. This list of approved equipment replaces the previous list published at 33 Pa.B. 5143 (October 11, 2003) and is published under the authority contained in the Motor Vehicle Code (75 Pa.C.S. § 1547(c)(1) (relating to chemical testing to determine amount of alcohol or controlled substance)), the Fish and Boat Code (30 Pa.C.S. § 5125(c)(1) (relating to chemical testing to determine amount of alcohol or controlled substance)), the Game and Wildlife Code (34 Pa.C.S. § 2502(c) (relating to chemical test to determine amount of alcohol)) and The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 532).
Equipment approved under this notice may be used by law enforcement officials to obtain test results which will be admissible in evidence in any summary or criminal proceeding in which the defendant is charged with a violation of 75 Pa.C.S. § 3802 (relating to driving under influence of alcohol or controlled substance), any other violation of the Vehicle Code arising out of the same action, 30 Pa.C.S. § 5502 (relating to operating watercraft under influence of alcohol or controlled substance), any other violation of the Fish and Boat Code arising out of the same action, 34 Pa.C.S. § 2501 (relating to hunting or furtaking prohibited while under influence of alcohol or controlled substance) or any other violation of the Game and Wildlife Code arising out of the same action. Law enforcement agencies should determine that an approved training program in the use of the equipment is available in accordance with the previously referenced statutes before purchasing any of the devices contained on this list.
The approval of equipment by the Department is based on the evaluation of the equipment by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the United States Department of Transportation. Equipment which met the Federal requirements was published at 67 FR 62091 (October 3, 2002) as a Conforming Products List. The list contained in this notice is based on that Conforming Products List.
Instruments marked with an asterisk meet the model specifications detailed at 49 FR 48854 (December 14, 1984) (that is, instruments tested at breath alcohol concentrations of 0.000, 0.050, 0.101 and 0.151 gram of alcohol per 210 liters of air). Instruments not marked with an asterisk meet the model specifications detailed at 58 FR 48705 (September 17, 1993), and were tested at breath alcohol concentrations of 0.000, 0.020, 0.040, 0.080 and 0.160 gram of alcohol per 210 liters of air. Instruments whose precision and accuracy have been evaluated in the latter concentration range (that is, devices not marked with an asterisk) should be used when reliable results are required at blood concentrations below 0.050%.
The NHTSA also evaluates equipment to determine if it must be operated at fixed locations (that is, nonmobile equipment) or can be transported to nonfixed operational sites in the field (mobile equipment). Equipment on the list is approved for both mobile and/or nonmobile operation unless otherwise specified.
Inquiries concerning this notice should be directed to M. Jeffery Shoemaker, Ph.D., Director, Division of Chemistry and Toxicology, Bureau of Laboratories, Department of Health, P. O. Box 500, Exton, PA 19341-0500, (610) 280-3464.
Persons with a disability who require an alternative format of this notice (for example, large print, audiotape or Braille) should contact Dr. Shoemaker at the previously referenced address or phone number. Persons who are speech or hearing impaired may use V/TT: (717) 783-6514 or the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 (TT).
