List of diagnostic criteria used per country?

It seems as if every country, government or patient organisation uses other diagnostic criteria when it comes defining new guidelines (insurance, rehabilitation, ...).

Australia uses the Canadian / ICC
Norwegia: ICC

Is there a list available on the net please to proof the inconsistency between the countries?

We need it before Monday April 1 :)
