Consultative Committee for Mass and Related Quantities (CCM)
The CCM was set up in 1980.

Present activities concern matters related to the comparisons of mass standards with the international prototype of the kilogram, considerations affecting the definition and realization of the unit of mass, establishment of international equivalence between national laboratories for mass and a number of related quantities (density, pressure, force, fluid flow, viscosity, hardness, gravitational acceleration) and advice to the CIPM on these matters.
