The NRLs’ main responsibilities include: collaborating with EURLs; providing scientific and technical support to health or veterinary authorities for implementing coordinated control plans; and ensuring that the information supplied by the EURL is provided to both the authorities and official national laboratories. All EU Member States, as well as EEA and EU Candidate Countries, have appointed one or more NRLs for parasites, shown in the map (by clicking on the markers, all information will be displayed. Increased zooming is needed for Norway and Romania, as they have two NRLs located in the same city).
The podcasts of discussions on NRL and invited speakers presentations, as well as the posters presented by NRLs, are available at the following link: Audio.
