Decimal multiples and submultiples of the unit of mass

The Comité International des Poids et Mesures,

considering that the rule for forming names of decimal multiples and submultiples of the units of paragraph 3 of Resolution 12 of the 11th Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures (CGPM) (1960) might be interpreted in different ways when applied to the unit of mass,

declares that the rules of Resolution 12 of the 11th CGPM apply to the kilogram in the following manner: the names of decimal multiples and submultiples of the unit of mass are formed by attaching prefixes to the word "gram".
