Where does C standard mention alignment requirements as written in gcc manual?

In gcc manual it says:

"Note that the alignment of any given struct or union type is required
by the ISO C standard to be at least a perfect multiple of the lowest
common multiple of the alignments of all of the members of the struct
or union in question."

Where exactly is this requirement mentioned in C standard? I was
looking for it in both C99 and C11 drafts and couldn't find it.
