The General Conference on Weights and Measures (Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures, CGPM) is made up of delegates of the governments of the Member States and observers from the Associates of the CGPM.

The General Conference receives the report of the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM) on work accomplished; it discusses and examines the arrangements required to ensure the propagation and improvement of the International System of Units (SI); it endorses the results of new fundamental metrological determinations and various scientific resolutions of international scope; and it decides all major issues concerning the organization and development of the BIPM, including the dotation of the BIPM.

The CGPM meets in Paris, usually once every four years; the 25th meeting will be held from 18-20 November 2014.
