DUI Metrology Dictionary


Bureau International Des Poids et Mesures: "the intergovernmental organization through which Member States act together on matters related to measurement science and measurement standards." The BIPM was created by the Metre Convention, which was signed on 20 May 1875. Visit www.bipm.org. Think of the BIPM as the office for the CGPM.

The BIPM web site is a very good source of infomation about metrology - measurement science. Lawyers, law students, and forensic science students will find helpful international literature therein.
