Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

During the period of 24 years, in relation to the manufacturing of the Neodymium magnets and alloys no medical problems had been found. Furthermore no increased dust exposures were detected during dust measurements performed at regular intervals. Threshold values for inert dusts are met. Due to the Neodymium particle's high oxygen affinity possible inhalation exposures consists of chemically inert Neodymium oxide.
