Title Alcohol interlocks - Test methods and performance requirements - Part 6: Data security
Project Number 24436
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies security requirements for the protection and handling of event records which are stored in the data memory of breath alcohol controlled alcohol interlocks and which may be downloaded, processed and transferred to supervising persons or organisations. This European Standard is a supplement to EN 50436-1. It has to be selected by the respective juris-diction whether the present standard has to be applied in addition to EN 50436-1. This European standard may also be used as a supplement to EN 50436-2 if a juris¬diction or a vehicle fleet operator decides that the data security in his preventive application has to have the same high level of requirements as for alcohol interlocks used in drink-driving-offender programmes. This European Standard is mainly directed to test houses, manufacturers for alcohol inter¬locks, legis-lating authorities and organisations which handle and use the alcohol interlock event records. In this European Standard, the alcohol interlock consists basically of handset and control unit. Optional accessory devices (e.g. camera, module for data transmission) which are intended to be used in the vehicle shall also be considered to be part of the alcohol interlock, where applicable. The service application communicates with the alcohol interlock and sends out the event records to a register, either directly or alternatively indirectly through a broker.
