Abstract: This report presents the results of the ILC of the EU-RL for Mycotoxins which focused on the determination of deoxynivalenol (DON), zearalenone (ZON), T-2 and HT-2 in cereal samples. Thirty-five participants from 27 countries registered for the exercise. 34 (Sample A) & 34 (Sample B) sets of results were reported for DON, 33 & 32 for ZON, 32 & 28 for T-2 and 30 & 28 for HT-2. Only z-scores for DON and ZON were calculated and used for benchmarking and in total about 95 % of the attributed z scores were below an absolute value of two for these two mycotoxins, which indicated that most of the participants performed satisfactory or better.
