In 2008 the European Union Reference Laboratory (EU-RL) for Bovine Tuberculosis (VISAVET Health Surveillance Centre, Madrid, Spain) was designated with the main activities (Commission Regulation 415/2013) of 1) Coordinating the methods employed in the Member States for diagnosing diseases; 2) Assisting actively in the diagnosis of disease outbreaks in Member States; 3) Facilitating the initial or further training of experts in laboratory diagnosis with a view to the harmonization of diagnostics; 4) Collaborating with the competent laboratories in third countries where those diseases are prevalent; and 5) Conducting initial and further training courses for the benefit of staff from national reference laboratories and of experts from developing countries. These tasks are performed for all the European National Reference Laboratories and two of the main activities will be discussed: the harmonization of protocols and the organization of comparative tests
