 From https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/publications/Pages/recs.aspx :
"The vast majority of all Recommendations are available in electronic 
(PDF) form, free of charge to all, once the final, edited version is 
published."

For example, lots of interesting stuff is listed on
https://www.itu.int/itu-t/recommendations/index.aspx?ser=X
