To trigger such (further) developmental activities, Workpackage 3 specifically addresses the needs and requirements of the police forces in the different European countries for roadside testing equipment.
In addition the legal circumstances and prerequisites in the countries of the EC have been investigated, because legislation is greatly influencing the route and frequency of application of roadside test devices. In this context also the area of alcohol testing has been evaluated as far as it is of importance for drug testing. Interestingly, the application of roadside drug test devices is prohibited by regulations in only very few European countries. In most countries drug test devices are not in use because of their low level of validation or their unavailability.
Based on the national experiences, European police forces are urgently requesting the validation and improvement of the existing drug test devices according to their operational needs and requirements or the development of novel roadside test devices to efficiently combat DUID. For saliva or sweat test devices, validation is an essential point. Only very few devices exist and the extent of validation is quite different. Urine test devices were broadly validated for laboratory applications, but not for roadside applications, and most police forces do not want or are unable to test urine. Unavailability may be interpreted as a "lack of knowledge", which on site applicable devices are available on the market.
The ROSITA project is not only providing an extensive field validation, it also supplies information on a international basis to eliminate this "lack of knowledge". (Extract of the publication)
