Are there residential wood stove installation guidelines/regulations from any industry, organization, governing body, code, or regulatory body, that would be acceptable to practically every fire department, insurance provider, and codes office in these United States?

I've seen where a stove manufacturers guidelines have been acceptable to one insurance company and not another. I've seen where one insurance will not accept another insurance company acceptable installation. So when a home owner changes insurance providers they have to constantly change their wood stove installation though it was already passed by the previous. So I thought maybe there's a regulatory body that has guidelines so thorough that nobody can argue with. Am I asking for the impossible?
