DUI Metrology Dictionary

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC)

A "quantity" in metrological terminology. "Quantity" is extensively defined in the international literature. VIM 1.1 "property of a phenomenon, body, or substance, where the property has a magnitude that can be expressed as a number and a reference", VIM describes an example of a quantity: "amount-of-substance concentration of ethanol in wine sample". Note that Parliament has prohibited a concentration, not just a rough estimate: "a blood alcohol concentration that is equal to or exceeds 80 mg of alcohol in 100 mL of blood". Connect construction and application of the Criminal Code with another federal statute, the Weights and Measures Act. They need to be read together.
