Welcome to the web site of the UK Metric Association
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
