The regulatory context

A request for periodic verification is made by the holder of the IID to an inspector qualified to carry out this inspection. This inspection must be made at least once a year, and involves checking that the device is still compliant with the applicable requirements.

The inspector carries out the periodic inspection evaluation and tests described in the technical specifications for the alcohol ignition interlock device fitted to motorised vehicles using dry gas, the measured value of which lies between 0.25 mg/l and 0.5 mg/l.

If the IID satisfies the regulations applicable to periodic inspection, the inspector stamps the IID with an inspection mark indicating the month and year of the next inspection if necessary. He/She changes the inspection date recorded in the device. The inspector delivers a periodic inspection certificate.
