ITU-R BS.1770-2 states (page 4):

These filter coefficients are for a sampling rate of 48 kHz. 
Implementations at other sampling rates will require different 
coefficient values, which should be chosen to provide the same frequency
response that the specified filter provides at 48 kHz.

I read this as "feel free to use a different sampling rate but you will 
have to calculate the filter coefficients for yourself".
