The Committee on Testing for
Intoxication is established by Nevada Revised Statute (NRS)
484.388 as a 5-member committee appointed by the Directory of the
Department of Public Safety (DPS).
The purpose of the committee is to
certify and approve breath testing devices as being accurate and
reliable to test for intoxication, to keep a list of such approved
devices, and to certify individuals in the proper use of such
devices. The Committee meets on an as-needed basis to add new
devices to the approved list and to conduct related business.
Prior to December 13, 1999, the list
of approved devices was contained in the Nevada Administrative Code
(NAC) 484, sections 606, 631 and 701. After that date,
administration of the list became a function of the Committee for
Testing for Intoxication. For information concerning the list
of approved devices and/or committee meetings, please contact the
