Requests for Units

Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law. Immanuel Kant

This is the routine maintenance work for UCUM.

In a typical year we see no more than 10 requests for additions to UCUM.

However, many of the requests are problematic and require careful consideration balancing the semantic clarity of UCUM units with the practical demands of users in the field.

Because UCUM must be a system based on principles and cannot under any circumstances be allowed to become a grab-bag of vaguely defined words, all decisions on new entries must be based on principles.

The present hot topic to be resolved is the ProcedureDefinedUnits.
