Abstract: This report presents the results of the PT of the EURL for Mycotoxins which focused on the determination of zearalenone in maize oil. Forty-eight participants from thirty countries (among them 32 NRLs, 2 Non-EU Reference Laboratories and 13 official food control laboratories) registered for the exercise and 46 sets (Sample A and B) of results were reported. Only z-scores were used for the evaluation whether an individual laboratory underperformed. In total, 87 % of the attributed z scores were below an absolute value of two, which indicates that most of the participants performed satisfactorily.
