Used to prevent drunk driving, a breath alcohol ignition interlock device (also known as BAIID, BIID, alcohol interlock device or adult safety interlock) is a breath analysis mechanism that integrates into a vehicle’s dashboard and prevents it from starting without a passing breath sample. BAIID testing is critical to ensuring the proper function of a device, meeting state or federal regulations and keeping drivers safe.
In the United States, breath alcohol ignition interlock devices are required to comply with both federal and state regulations. In Australia, Europe and other global markets, testing requirements depend on a number of different factors. Our experts have over a decade of experience with BAIID testing, and can help ensure that your products are compliant, reliable and fit for purpose, no matter where they are used.
