Abstract : This handbook presents a comprehensive examination of the principal antitrust questions which have arisen or appear likely to arise under the metrication planning and conversion process. The handbook developed from a perceived need of the private sector for guidance covering the antitrust implications of a metric conversion. The United States Metric Board's Office of General Counsel has prepared this document in consultation with the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Competition of the Federal Trade Commission.
