Links between the BIPM and IUPAP

  • IUPAP participates in the CCU and the JCGM.


The mission of IUPAP is to assist in the worldwide development of physics, to foster international cooperation in physics, and to help in the application of physics toward solving problems of concern to humanity.

The BIPM and IUPAP cooperate to ensure that data published by IUPAP related in particular to physical properties and measurements, makes appropriate consideration and reference to the SI units, metrological traceability and measurement uncertainty and that any IUPAP document concerned with terminology, nomenclature, symbols and other conventions is consistent with the SI Brochure.
