How to use mutation rate to identify a homozygous or heterozygous mutation?

Dear all,
This may not be very related to GATK software. I have a question that we use software to call SNP, and get the mutation rate of each SNP, are there any standards to identify if it is a homozygous mutation? like setting a threshold
of 40%-80% is heterozygous mutation, and beyond 80% or beneath 40% is homozygous mutation. If there is a international recognized standards?
Thank you for your time.
