I am trying to put together a reference chart for screw torque values and had some questions. I was hoping there was something online that i could grab but it dosent seem to be the case. All fasteners are metic A4-70 and the work piece is either aluminium or SS.
Is there a universal standard that should be followed? If so which one?
How does loctite/threadlocker affect the K value?
Does the recommended torque value differ depending on application - High vibration, underwater etc.
Thank you in advance.

There's not really a universal standard on fastener torque per fastener. But it is common to have standard torque tables in engineering design activities.
See the following documents and webpages that will help you to develop you own torque-per-application tables.

FYI, usually threaded inserts are used in aluminum when corrosion and torque matters.
