The Commission on Clinical Chemistry (CCC) of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) nominated a Subcommission for Standards and Units in Clinical Chemistry1 in 1965. The primary task of the subcommission was to study  individual and national efforts to counteract the increasingly chaotic use of quantities and units in clinical chemistry;  current usage of units in related fields of science, especially biochemistry and general chemistry; and  the official recommendations regarding units from IUPAC, IUB2, IUPAP3, and ISO4. The subcommission was also to submit a draft for a CCC Recommendation.
