Resolution 7 of the 13th CGPM (1967/68)
Version française
Abrogation of earlier decisions (micron, new candle)

    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:

    1. the unit name "micron", and the symbol "µ" which had been given to that unit but which has now become a prefix;
    2. the unit name "new candle".
