Survey and Diagnosis by National Reference Laboratories from Europe

European National Reference Laboratories for mollusc diseases are asked to fill in a questionnaire sent annualy by the EURL.

This questionnaire includes three sessions:

  • General data on mollusc production
  • Diagnostic methods used by laboratories for the detection of mollusc diseases
  • Epidemiological results for the surveillance of Molluscs diseases.

The EURL collates this information before the Annual Meeting where representatives from each Member State present the disease situation in their respective country, emphasising mollusc diseases listed in the EU Directive 2006/88/EC (see "Legislation" page). These data can be found in the Annual Meeting reports in the "NRLs'Section" (access restricted to European National Reference Laboratories for molluscs diseases).
