There is no truly *universal* measurement system, yet.
However, the metric system is *global*, which is probably what
the reader originally wanted. (Note that the metric system is
essentially a *terrestrial* system, and about as suited to
extra-terrestrial measurements as cubits and furlongs are.)

### What is the universal system of units now used called?

The universal system of units that are now used is called SI
measurement system.
SI unit defined as any of the units adopted for international
use under the SystÃ¨me International d'UnitÃ©s, now employed for
all scientific and most technical purposes.
There are seven fundamental units: the meter, kilogram, second,
ampere, kelvin, candela, and mole; and two supplementary units: the
radian and the steradian.
All other units are derived by multiplication or division of
these units without the use of numerical factors.
