Because it is now a published standard, the only legal way to acquire it is 
from either the owner of the copyright (ISO at www.iso.org) or their 
licensed agents (in the USA, ANSI at www.ansi.org or INCITS at 
www.incits.org).  I'm afraid that I do not know the cost, but the cost of 
standards at INCITS is historically much lower (US$18.00 per downloaded PDF 
file) than at either ISO or ANSI (whose costs for PDF files appears to be 
about the same as their costs for paper copies).

Hope this helps,

P.S., All of those sites have searchable web stores.
