Model Specifications for Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices (BAIIDs)
This notice revises the Model Specifications for Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices (BAIIDs). The Model Specifications are guidelines for the performance and uniform testing of BAIIDs. These devices are designed to prevent a driver from starting a motor vehicle when the driver's breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) is at or above a set alcohol level. Every State in the United States has enacted a law providing for the use of BAIIDs as a sanction for drivers convicted of driving while intoxicated offenses. This notice revises the 1992 Model Specifications, to test BAIIDs for conformance. These Model Specifications are based, in part, on input from interested parties during an open comment period. This notice also indicates that NHTSA will delay rendering a decision about the feasibility and timing of a Conforming Products List (CPL) until more information is available. Accordingly, NHTSA plans to conduct an assessment to determine whether establishing and maintaining a CPL is feasible, prior to rendering a decision.
Reports, Forms, and Recordkeeping Requirements
Before a Federal agency can collect certain information from the public, it must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Under procedures established by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), before seeking OMB approval, Federal agencies must solicit public comment on proposed collections of information, including extensions and reinstatements of previously approved collections. This document describes an Information Collection Request (ICR) for which NHTSA intends to seek OMB approval.
