  • CGPM votes unanimously to change the SI

    SI redef sq smlAt 12:20 CET today, CGPM, the General Conference on Weights and Measures responsible for decisions on the systeme internationale, voted unanimously to move the foundations of physical and chemical measurement.

    The CGPM met, at an open meeting at the Palais des Congrès, Versailles, to discuss and vote on the re-definition of four of the SI’s seven base units: the mole, the ampere, the kelvin, and the kilogram.
    This change, which will come into effect on World Metrology Day (20th May) 2019, is perhaps the most fundamental change in the SI since its inception. For the first time, the SI will be defined entirely in terms of fundamental physical constants, instead of requiring the maintenance of a physical artefact.
