Appendix B—Guidelines for Re-testing of Modified Screening Devices Manufacturers contemplating revisions to an alcohol screening device listed on the PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71191 Conforming Products List (CPL) are advised that the revision may affect the status of the device on the CPL. The manufacturer should inform NHTSA of the contemplated change so that a judgment can be made whether or not re-testing the revised alcohol screening device is necessary. The following lists the type of information NHTSA uses in determining the necessity to re-test an alcohol screening device, and is provided as guidance to manufacturers: • Manufacturer and Model Name. • Nature and reason for change. • Scope of change (e.g., Will existing devices be retrofitted? Will the change apply to some users but not others?) • Will the change affect performance of the device with regards to the Model Specifications? (Precision and accuracy, blank reading, temperature operations, or vibrations.) • How will the change(s) be documented for the benefit of the user? (e.g., Will the change(s) be documented in service bulletins and/or service manuals? If not, why not?) If necessary for clarity, drawings of the listed and changed device may also be helpful in the NHTSA’s deliberations. If, upon review of information provided by a manufacturer, it is determined that retesting is not warranted, a statement to that effect will be included in the next scheduled CPL update. Additionally, NHTSA reserves the right to re-test any device on the open market to determine continued compliance and performance in accordance with these Model Specifications. Devices found not to comply with or perform in accordance with the Model Specifications are subject to the investigation provisions stated above in Section II, Procedures.
