Yes, there are thousands of standards regarding POP construction and
POP equipment installation.  There are lots of standards bodies who
publish standards, although many good ones are still proprietary.  You
need to be a bit more specific.

See ANSI, ATIS, Bellcore(telcordia), ETSI, Factory Mutual, ICBO, MIL-STD,
MIL-HDBK and UL to get you started.  A major public or university library
can help you with your research needs.
