The NCCLS website is your friend, although they changed name (and I can't remember the new one) and you will find all the diferent methodologies. But it's not free.
Otherwise you can search the litterature for papers that worked on the same organism and give more detail that "was assayed following NCCLS standard" that exist too ;-)

As an alternative you go http://www.sfm.asso.fr where you will find for free the guidelines by the french society of microbiology (societe française de Microbiologie) which are free, and as a matter of fact very similar to the NCCLS standard.

Be careful taough since guidelines are updated regularly, and breakpoints can be changed between different versions.
