PER CURIAM

PER CURIAM

Defendant was convicted of two counts of driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII). ORS 813.010. On appeal, he assigns error to the admission into evidence of certifications of the accuracy of the Intoxilyzer machine that produced the test result that was also admitted into evidence. He first argues that the certifications were not relevant, and, therefore, under OEC 402, they were inadmissible. We reject that argument under State v. Mattila, 52 Or App 743, 629 P2d 845 (1981).

Defendant also argues that the admission of the documents without the opportunity to cross-examine the technicians who prepared them violated his right to confront witnesses under Article I, section 11, of the Oregon Constitution (1) and the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution. (2) We rejected similar arguments in State v. William, 199 Or App 191, 193-97, 110 P3d 1114, rev den, 339 Or 406 (2005), and State v. Norman, 203 Or App __ , __, __P3d__ (Dec 7, 2005).

Affirmed.


1. Article I, section 11, of the Oregon Constitution provides, in part:

2. The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides, in part:
