The 13th Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures (CGPM),
considering that subsequent decisions of the General Conference concerning the Système International d'Unités are incompatible with parts of Resolution 7 of the 9th CGPM (1948),
decides accordingly to remove from Resolution 7 of the 9th CGPM:
- the unit name "micron", and the symbol "µ" which had been given to that unit but which has now become a prefix;
- the unit name "new candle".
