The ZZ production cross section in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV center-of-mass energy is measured using 3.2  fb−1 of data recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The considered Z boson candidates decay to an electron or muon pair of mass 66–116 GeV. The cross section is measured in a fiducial phase space reflecting the detector acceptance. It is also extrapolated to a total phase space for Z bosons in the same mass range and of all decay modes, giving 16.7+2.2−2.0(stat)+0.9−0.7(syst)+1.0−0.7(lumi)  pb. The results agree with standard model predictions.
