This is what comes back from online search:

Specifications clearly and accurately describe the technical requirements of any given product or process and are used heavily by purchasing departments for controlling the quality of incoming materials.

A Standard can be defined as a set of technical definitions and guidelines that function as instructions for designers, manufacturers, operators, or users of equipment.

A standard becomes a Code when it has been adopted by one or more governmental bodies and is enforceable by law, or when it has been incorporated into a business contract.

What EmmanuelTop wrote. In addition, a Code is the law. Some Standards are incorrectly called Codes.
