The Unicode Standard, I guess. It is available here 
www.unicode.org/versions/latest/.  The part on Hebrew in 
https://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode13.0.0/ch09.pdf , indeed 
contains the following paragraph:

    Because final form usage is a matter of spelling convention,
    software should not automatically substitute final forms for nominal
    forms at the end of words. The positional variants should be coded
    directly and rendered one-to-one via their own glyphs—that is,
    without contextual analysis.
