The American Gear Manufacturer's Association, AGMA, has published a very wide range of standards over the years. Visit www.agma.org and anyone can purchase any standard they want regardless of whether they are members.
AGMA 10 indicates what the parameters should be for a gear of a certain pitch and number of teeth including radial runout, tooth-to-tooth spacing error, total radial runout etc. Essentially the accuracy of a gear.
It is also important to note which VERSION of a particular standard you are referring to as different versions have been updated. Normally a standard, in its preface, will indicate the standard that it precedes. Simple example, Windows XP replaced Windows 2000, which replaced '98, etc.
