Fortran Standards Documents
Draft (unofficial) versions of the various recent Fortran standards and corrigenda are available from the J3 website, the WG5 website, and/or the WG5 file server, in various formats. In addition, some older Fortran standards are available from www.fortran.com. The official standards can be bought from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or from your national standardization organization.
Note that, of these standards, GNU Fortran currently only supports the base Fortran 95 standard (not parts 2 or 3) as amended in the two corrigenda, the Fortran 95 TR 15581 extension, the Fortran 77 standard with the MILSTD 1753 extensions, and some portions of the Fortran 2003 standard; these standards have been highlighted in bold. The other documents are linked here for reference, but should not be taken as documentation of GNU Fortran features.

Other Relevant Standards
OpenMP (Open MultiProcessing)
OpenMP specifications  for gfortran relevant and supported are 2.5 and 3.0.
POSIX
The IEEE standard covering Fortran 77 POSIX bindings is available online, though unfortunately only from locations with appropriate subscriptions to the IEEE server (e.g., many university networks). For those who do have such access, the link is:
POSIX Fortran 77 Language Interfaces (IEEE Std 1003.91992) (pdf)
Note IEEE 1003.91992 was withdrawn 6 February 2003. Some vendors provide their own way to access POSIX functions and make those available as module; for instance the IFPORT module of Intel or the f90_* modules of NAG. There also some compilerindependent efforts to make them accessible, e.g. Posix90 (doc), flibs' platform/files and directories, fortranposix.
ISO/IEC Project 22.24772: Guidance for Avoiding Vulnerabilities through Language Selection and Use
"The OWGV project is preparing comparative guidance spanning multiple programming languages, so that application developers will be better able to avoid the programming errors that lead to vulnerabilities in these languages and their attendant consequences. This guidance can also be used by developers to select source code evaluation tools that can discover and eliminate coding errors that lead to vulnerabilities."
