What is your specific interest in this forum discussion. I took part in it. 
The following decision have been made.

I will manage a list of country representatives via GSBN.
An initial list of all tests will be sent around for adding too by Mark 
Bigland Pritchard
We will pool all currently available test results either directly or via 
links from Bruce Kings website.
We will strive to create a performance based SB building best practice guide.

Besides this we had an extensive discussion of the current status and 
obstacles to full acceptance of SB building in Germany specifically with 
reference to the microbial/fungal growth test and combustability of straw. 
The general opinion based on this discussion is to strive for the 
acceptance EN tests in preference to local country tests making the tests 
much more widely applicable. Local tests are often misused to protect the 
vested interests of building material manufacturers.
