Mycotoxins Factsheet - fourth edition

This Technical Report of the European Union Reference Laboratory (EU-RLRL) for Mycotoxins aims to deliver useful scientific information to all laboratories dealing with mycotoxins determination in food, but also in other matrices. Chemical data of the mycotoxins of concern, European legislation related to mycotoxins in food and feed and web-links to toxicological information on these compounds are reported. Also the occurrence and analytical methods are included. A long list of links to international organisations of general interest for analytical chemistry and food safety and of organisations of specific interest as well as some e-publications is included. Also links for books, international guidelines, proficiency test providers, standards and consumables suppliers can be found. From the first edition, links were checked and, when necessary, corrected; some information was added.
