Membership

The network membership is reserved to OIE Bluetongue Reference Laboratories, OIE collaborating centres and members of OIE Ad hoc group on bluetongue. However, in order to expand the network, as far as possible, OIE gives the opportunity to include also Bluetongue National Reference Laboratories.
The network will be expanded, as far as possible, to include BT National Reference Laboratories and other highly competent laboratories so as to create the widest possible worldwide network.
