Committee structure
Under the terms of the Metre Convention, the BIPM operates under the exclusive supervision of the International Committee for Weights and Measures (Comité International des Poids et Mesures, CIPM), which itself comes under the authority of the General Conference on Weights and Measures (Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures, CGPM). The CGPM elects the members of the CIPM and brings together periodically, generally once every four years, representatives of the governments of Member States.

The CIPM has established a number of Consultative Committees, which bring together the world's experts in their specified fields as advisers on scientific and technical matters.

In addition the BIPM participates in the work of a number of Joint Committees which have been created in collaboration with other international entities to undertake particular tasks of common interest.
