French term or phrase: indice d'irritation moyen
As in "Détermination d'un score d'irritation moyen:
IIM = score total des réactions" divided by "nombre total de volontaires". "Average irritation score" seems to fit the bill; my only hesitation is that I've found a number of references to "Primary Dermal Irritation Index (average irritation score)", so I'm not sure which is the appropriate term to use in English. PDII appears as an acronym, AIS doesn't seem to. Anyone familiar with these tests, who can advise me? Guidance much appreciated.

Primary Dermal Irritation Index (average irritation score)
Explanation:
You found the answer. Both are used in this area, with PDII being the most common. The other is synomous and often added in parentheses. I would do it just that way for a the translation of IIM.
