# Measure Formats

## UNECE

UNECE, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe has standardized the measurement unit codes for use in Trade.

## ACORD

ACORD, a leading insurance standardization organization uses the following semantics for expressing measures:

- Measurement
- NumUnits (Required) Decimal
- UnitMeasurementCd (Optional) the value must be one of the ones defined by UNECE.

## Systeme International

The internation system of measures consists of base and derived units of measure.

For instance, meter (m) is the elementary unit of length, second (s) the elementary unit of time, and speed or velocity is derived and expressed in meter per second (m/s).
