Thanks Feile

as to Earth Building Standards

there are the three NZ standards (currently under review) and one compliance document for external moisture:

Some of you have included associations you are involved with, which is a good thing to know, e.g. if you are board members of various natural building associations, etc.
> Andy Horn had queried what standards and codes are available around the world for natural buildings - does anyone have any follow ups on that? Regulation seems to be getting tighter and tighter, so the more science and approved data we can throw at the authorities, the more natural buildings will be be built (and the easier it will be to convince clients that it need not be a big them-and-us battle).
