SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, the Commission is publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking for the purpose of revising the supplemental definition of ‘‘strong sensitizer’’ found at 16 CFR 1500.3(c)(5). The Commission is proposing to revise the supplemental definition of ‘‘strong sensitizer’’ due to advancements in the science of sensitization that have occurred since the current supplemental definition of ‘‘strong sensitizer’’ was promulgated in 1986. Toward this end, the Commission convened a panel of scientific experts from academia, industry, and the Federal Government who evaluated the current definition in light of scientific advances in the field of sensitization and made recommendations for proposed changes to the current definition, which eliminate redundancy, remove certain subjective factors, incorporate new and future technology for determining the sensitization characteristics of substances, rank the criteria for classification of strong sensitizers in order of importance (e.g., human over animal data), define criteria for ‘‘severity of reaction’’, and adopt a weight-of-the-evidence approach to determine the strength of the sensitizer. Commission staff has prepared a document titled, ‘‘Strong Sensitizer Guidelines,’’ which explains and clarifies each section of the proposed ‘‘strong sensitizer’’ supplemental VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Mar 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 definition by explaining the current scientific rationale underlying the methodologies and analysis that staff will consider when assessing whether a substance is a strong sensitizer. The CPSC expects that the guidance document will assist manufacturers and other stakeholders in understanding how CPSC staff and the Commission would assess whether a substance or product containing a substance should be considered a ‘‘strong sensitizer.’’ The staff guidance document is available on the Commission’s Web site and from the Commission’s Office of the Secretary, both listed in the ADDRESSES section of this notice.
