A lot of this is done in the audio world - I used to have a couple of sites
that listed who made what, some basic testing and so on - try some of the
audio magazines online.

As for real archival reviewers, most of this is being done by the few
archival and permanence institutes around the world - in my case the
Canadian Conservation Institute - a quasi government body, linked to the
National Archives.

They have the scientists and the skills and experience in accelerated
testing, disaster recovery testing etc. But most are short on funds/time and
have many other projects (mostly, the manufacturers don't seem interested in
testing, unlike say inkjet ink/paper manufacturers are). Also, this sort of
testing takes time.
