As manufacturers of evidential breath analysers (EBA) or as users of this type of equipment for alcohol measurements in the breath, you must ensure that they are reliable and comply with the regulations in force. To meet these requirements, LNE carries out initial and periodic verifications and tests under COFRAC accreditation.
