**SYSTEM**

**The metric system is an internationally agreed decimal system of measurement.**

**The metric system has been officially sanctioned for use in the United States**

**since 1866, but the US remains the only industrialised country that has not**

**adopted the metric system as its official system of measurement: although In**

**1988, Congress passed the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act, which**

**designates "the metric system of measurement as the preferred system of weights**

**and measures for United States trade and commerce". Among many other things,**

**the act requires federal agencies to use metric measurements in nearly all of**

**their activities, although there are still exceptions allowing traditional units**

**to be used in documents intended for consumers.**
