List of Participants 12PURPOSE OF THE WORKSHOP
In recent years considerable attention has been driven at improving and ensuring the
quality of analytical data on contaminants in foods and animal feeds. Whether the data is used
for the purposes of assessing risk from exposure through food surveillance, for food control
purposes (regulatory monitoring) or for the purposes of monitoring standards for trading
purposes, it is critical that contaminants are correctly identified and that quantitative data is
reliable. Mycotoxins are no exception to this requirements and they present the unique
analytical challenges in terms both of obtaining truly representative samples and in undertaking
analysis at the low regulatory limits of control required in many countries.
This workshop has been following a Meeting on Food Safety and Quality that was
organized by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre. During this workshop the
most important topics were identified.
The aim of this specific workshop on mycotoxins was to assess the state-of-the-art
regarding methodology, to gather the information on laboratory analysis and implementation of
European legislation on mycotoxins in EU Accession Candidate Countries and to extend
collaboration between Accession Countries' laboratories, under the auspices of the JRC.
All experts from EU Candidate Countries were invited to give a presentation regarding
the state-of-the-art analysis of mycotoxins in their country and to complete a questionnaire. A
summary of the responses to the questionnaires was presented at the workshop. Critical issues
were discussed. MINUTES
