On this day (September 28), 1889, near Paris, France, the first General Conference on Weights and Measures meets with the idea of ​​creating a standard.
The General Conference on Weights and Measures is the supreme authority of the International Bureau of Weights and Measures, the intergovernmental organization established in 1875 under the terms of the Convention of the Meter through which Member States act together on matters related to measurement science and measurement standards.
The Metro Convention is a treaty international that was signed in Paris on May 20, 1875 by representatives of 17 nations. The treaty created the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM), an intergovernmental organization under the authority of the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM).) and the supervision of the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM), which coordinates international metrology and the development of the metric system
The CGPM meets in Paris, generally once every four years. Initially, the Meter Convention only referred to the kilogram and meter, but in 1921 the scope of the treaty was expanded to include all physical measurements and thus all aspects of the metric system.
The kilogram was defined as the mass of the international standard kilogram constructed of platinum-iridium, which is located at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (Bureau international des poids et mesures), Sèvres, France. The international standard meter was also adopted. The carat, equivalent to 200 mg, was adopted.
As a curiosity, comment that the international prototype of the kilogram is an object that was used to define the mass magnitude of the kilogram since 1889, when it replaced the Kilogram des Archives, until 2019, when it was replaced by a new definition of the kilogram based on physical constants . During that time, the IPK and its duplicates were used to calibrate all other kilogram mass standards on Earth.
