According to Xometry, those standards listed below are the most relevant of all  ISO CNC-related available content.

"ISO 230 – This is a 10-part series of standards that determine the geometric accuracy of machines operating under quasi-static or no-load conditions, the accuracy and repeatability of numerically controlled axes, the thermal effects on machine tools, noise emissions, and vibration levels during machining processes.

ISO 229:1973 – This standard specifies the speeds and feeds of CNC machines.

ISO 369:2009 – Certain symbols and depictions can be found on the body of CNC machines. These symbols and their corresponding meanings are specified in this standard."--Xometry website.
