Strong Sensitizer Law and Legal Definition

According to 15 USCS § 1261 (k), [Title 15. Commerce and Trade; Chapter 30. Hazardous Substances] the term strong sensitizer means “a substance which will cause on normal living tissue through an allergic or photodynamic process a hypersensitivity which becomes evident on reapplication of the same substance and which is designated as such by the Commission. Before designating any substance as a strong sensitizer, the Commission, upon consideration of the frequency of occurrence and severity of the reaction, shall find that the substance has a significant potential for causing hypersensitivity.”
