Remote alcohol monitoring devices - Test methods and performance requirements - Part 1: Instruments for assessment programmes

The purpose of this new standard is to specify test methods and performance requirements for remotely monitored breath alcohol testing devices. It covers remote alcohol monitoring devices intended to be used by participants in programmes designed to monitor abstinence or restricted alcohol consumption.

Dispositifs de contrôle à distance de l'alcoolémie - Méthodes d'essai et exigences de performance - Partie 1: Instruments pour les programmes d'évaluation

Le présent document spécifie les exigences de performance, ainsi que les méthodes d'essai relatives aux dispositifs de contrôle à distance de l'alcoolémie qui utilisent des technologies d'essai du taux d'alcoolémie. Il couvre les dispositifs de contrôle à distance de l'alcoolémie équipés d'un embout et destinés à être utilisés par les participants à des programmes de contrôle de la consommation d'alcool. Le présent document s'adresse aux laboratoires d'essais et aux fabricants de dispositifs de contrôle à distance de l'alcoolémie. Il définit les exigences et les procédures d'essai relatives aux essais de type. Plusieurs réglages de paramètres (tels que la concentration d'alcool, le volume d'air expiré et les unités de mesure) sont spécifiés dans le présent document pour les besoins des essais de type dans le cadre de la présente norme seulement. Toutefois, en raison de réglementations nationales ou selon les demandes des utilisateurs, il peut être nécessaire de définir les réglages de paramètres prescrits sur des valeurs différentes lorsque les dispositifs de contrôle à distance de l'alcoolémie sont utilisés.

Introduction

The purpose of remote alcohol monitoring devices is to monitor the compliance of persons subject to

mandatory or voluntary programmes focused on monitoring alcohol consumption.

The purpose of EN 50980-1 is to specify essential performance requirements and to provide the

respective test methods for available technologies. The technology of remote alcohol monitoring

devices continues to evolve, and further innovations can be expected. These could be considered in

new parts or revisions of this European Standard.

1 Scope

This document specifies performance requirements and test methods for remote alcohol monitoring

devices that use breath alcohol testing technology. It covers remote alcohol monitoring devices having

a mouthpiece and which are intended to be used by participants in programmes designed to monitor

alcohol consumption.

This document is directed at test laboratories and manufacturers of remote alcohol monitoring devices.

It defines requirements and test procedures for type testing.

Several parameter settings (such as alcohol concentration, breath volume or units of measurement)

are specified in this document for the purpose of type testing according to this standard only. However,

it may be necessary due to national regulations or depending on user requests to set the values of the

prescribed parameter settings differently when the remote alcohol monitoring devices are in use.
