  Bureau International des Poids et Mesures
  BIPM
  
      (BIPM) The standards body that ensures
     world-wide uniformity of measurements and their traceability
     to the International System of Units (SI).  The BIPM is
     based in France and operates with the authority of the
     Convention of the Metre, a diplomatic treaty between fifty-one
     nations.  It operates through a series of committees, whose
     members are the national metrology laboratories of the member
     states of the convention, and through its own laboratory work.
  
     The BIPM carries out measurement-related research.  It takes
     part in, and organises, international comparisons of national
     measurement standards, and it carries out calibrations for
     member states.
