Applicant's summary and conclusion

MMVF are inorganic and have low biological activity. These fibres do not translocate after intake (ingestion or inhalation). They present some biosolublility and are dissolved by the lung fluid after inhalation. Due to these characteristics it is assessed that exposure of males and females in a pre-mating period will not affect the fertility. The continued exposure of the females after fertilisation (the dams) will not result in exposure of foetuses and consequently not affect the foetuses.
