The word "standard" does not appear as such, but it can be inferred...

Haskell 2010 Language Report:  The Haskell 2010 Libraries

Note however that the language of the Report's preface applies:  this is
not intended to be a standard library in the sense usually meant by
newcomers, but a conservative minimum required by all conformant
implementations.  (It's also not limited to the Prelude; neither was
Haskell98's version.)
