European Union Reference Laboratory EURL for rabies

The Nancy laboratory for rabies and wildlife is part of ANSES.

The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (ANSES) has incorporated the missions, resources and personnel of the French Food Safety Agency (AFSSA) and the French Agency for Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (AFSSET). Its principal mission is to contribute to the protection of human health with respect to the environment, the workplace and food.

On 1st July 2008, the European Commission designated the French Food Safety Agency as the European Union Reference Laboratory (EURL) for rabies (Regulation (EC) No 737/2008)

The activities of the European Union Reference Laboratory are undertaken in the Lyssavirus Unit of the Nancy laboratory for rabies and wildlife. This laboratory is specialised in animal rabies and several dominant and emerging wildlife zoonoses. The laboratory has 50 years of experience in rabies and is internationally recognised in this field.
