"After the analysis of all documentation provided by the relevant counterpart and examined by the review team and in addition to the observations collected during the site visit and the dialogue sustained with different stakeholders, it became evident that the radiological risks to members of the public and to the environment associated with the operation of [the] Lynas Advanced Material Plant are intrinsically low," the report further concludes.
