Do British-made breathalysers meet French legal requirements?

Would a reputable British breathalyser, such as the Alcosense Elite, obviate the need to purchase multiple French breathalysers in the light of recently introduced legislation in France?

No, because the French limit is lower and they are made by a mate of Sarkosy's who introduced the law.
