First, although nearly spherical to the eye, the Earth is slightly flattened standard international units the poles and deviates from the geometric ideal by about one part in three hundred. Second, a small mistake was made when measuring the equator to pole distance through Paris.

Thus the length of the actual meter differs from its expected length by about one part in four thousand. Inthe BIPM in Paris constructed a standard international units machined, platinum-iridium bar with two lines etched at opposite ends.

The meter was then defined as the distance between these two lines when stored under specified conditions. Regionally standard international units metrologists measurement technicians would travel to BIPM headquarters and copy the etched lines of the international prototype on to their own platinum-iridium bars to create regional prototypes.

These would then be used to create standard international units prototypes, which would then be used to create individual prototypes, which would then be used to calibrate practical measuring devices.

Access to standard international units international prototype was strictly controlled so as to keep the wear and tear on it to a minimum and to lessen the possibility of a catastrophic handling error.

The definitions of the base units have been modified several times since the Metre Convention inand new additions of base units have occurred.

SI -- from Eric Weisstein's World of Physics

The CGPM in agreed to a proposal to begin to redefine the kilogram, the ampere, the mole, and the kelvin in terms of fundamental physical constants. This system was formerly called the meter-kilogram-second MKS system.

All SI units can be expressed in terms of standard international units multiple or standard international units quantities, as well as directly. Multiple and fractional SI units are defined by prefix multipliers according to powers of 10 ranging from 10 to 10 Definitions of units sometimes need to be changed and new definitions added.
