“Alcohol Confirmation Test” is a breath test using an evidential breath testing device (EBT) capable of printing results and approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and placed on its “Conforming Products List of Evidential Breath Measurement Devices” used to determine whether an individual may have a prohibited concentration of alcohol in a breath specimen. Such testing must be performed by a certified Breath Alcohol Technician. It can be a second test following an alcohol screening test which indicates an alcohol concentration of 0.02 percent or greater.
