3. Reclassification of Breathalyzers

In a recent regulatory update, the Thai Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) reclassified the breathalyzers, removing them from the category of medical devices. This change is expected to facilitate the use by Nightspot of using breathalyzers to screen customers before they return home, for safety reasons. These devices, however, are still effective in detecting alcohol, so the public could still be assured of the functionality of these devices. Below is the flyer posted by the TFDA:
