From the beginning of 2007, ITU-T Recommendations will be available without charge for a trial
a small number of exceptions all in-force Recommendations will be available in
PDF form via a simple mouse click.
There is a
general belief that the strategic importance of making on-line access to ITU-T
Recommendations free outweighs the costs (in terms of lost
revenue) to ITU. This is seen as a way to increase the transparency of
ITU-T work and encourage wider participation in ITU-T activities. It is also
believed that this policy will help increase developing countries' awareness of
pertinent issues and help to promote the participation of
academia in ITU-T work.
Recommendations are available here.
