The European Union Reference Laboratory organises Proficiency Tests (PTs) on detection and typing of Foot-and-Mouth disease virus in accordance with the Regulation (EU) No 2017/625.

PT panels for FMDV and SVDV detection are established for virus isolation, RT-PCR, Antigen-ELISA and VP1 sequencing. PT panels for FMD antibody detection are established for FMDV NSP antibodies, FMDV SP antibodies and SVDV antibodies detection by ELISAs or/and virus neutralisation test.

The proficiency test (PT) for FMD virus and SVD virus and antibody detection is organised annually. All EU national reference laboratories (NRLs) and other official laboratories of the network are invited to participate.
