The RVS spectrograph on board of Gaia having no calibration device, radial velocity standards are needed to calibrate the zero-point of the instrument. We have prepared a list of 2798 such stars, well distributed over the sky, and compiled ~25000 individual RV measurements from ELODIE, SOPHIE, NARVAL, CORALIE and HARPS. For a fraction of these stars, their stability at the 300 m/s level during the Gaia mission has still to be assessed. The current follow-up programme on SOPHIE and CORALIE will be presented.
