The UK Metric Association (UKMA) is a single issue organisation whose main purpose is to benefit the general public by education about the metric system of measurement.
On our web site you will find the following information:
- accurate information to explain the metric system and to correct misunderstandings and debunk myths
- a demonstration of how the metric system is much easier to use than obsolete imperial
- practical help for people unaccustomed to metric
- an explanation of why it is in Britain's interest to complete the changeover to the international metric system as soon as possible
- sources and references for researchers and journalists
It's time to move on
Measurement affects us all when we work, buy food, fill up the car with petrol, weigh ourselves, go for a medical check-up, buy a property, go out for a drink, go for a walk or tend the garden. Modern Britain needs the best set of measures available.
