Unfortunately the Norwegian Directorate of Health has given in to pressure a bit since these excellent recommendations were made in July. In December, the Directorate updated their website information on ME/CFS: http://helsedirektoratet.no/helse-og-omsorgstjenester/cfs-me/Sider/default.aspx and here one can see that while the Directorate now recommends ICC (that's a big first!), it has unfortunately backed away a bit from the previous "CBT and GET can not be recommended". Under "Treatment" the text now states that CBT and GET has documented effects in some groups (understood: within the ME/CFS umbrella). This change is most unfortunate, and hopefully the excellent Norwegian patient organizations can lobby for a change back to the more restrictive (and truthful) previous statement.
