Compliance Team Services

1. Evaluating Positive Tests

When alcohol is detected by the Soberlink system, the "Retest Cycle" comes into play. The Retest Cycle requires the client to retest every 15 minutes, up to six times if alcohol continues to be detected. The Compliance Team uses these test results to evaluate the event in question. This is crucial in Family Law cases where a client may claim they did not consume alcohol. Test evaluations draw on years of research and established science about how the human body processes alcohol to reach conclusions. Without these evaluations, confusion can arise in court when Judges, Professionals, and Clients are discussing a positive test result.

2. Reporting Tampers

Tampers are, unfortunately, fairly common among Family Law clients attempting to trick or beat the system. The Soberlink Compliance Team is trained to analyze and report tampers using various proprietary methods. For instance, the team can assess test results to determine if a user tried to employ alternative air sources, like an air pump, to test negative for alcohol.

3. Evaluating Returned Equipment

Returned equipment goes through a comprehensive and systematic inspection. The Compliance Team is responsible for interpreting the inspection results and reporting the results in a digestible manner.

4. Interpreting Results

On occasion, test results may need to be interpreted, especially when there are uncertainties about BAC levels, the client's identity, or whether a test should be deemed missed. The Compliance Team is highly skilled in the analysis and interpretation of these results, providing Family Law professionals with clear and concise information.
