Central European Summer Time
CENTRAL EUROPEAN SUMMER TIME (CEST) is the standard clock time observed during the period of summer daylight-saving in those European countries which observe Central European Time (UTC+1 ) during the rest of the year. It corresponds to UTC+2 , which makes it the same as Central Africa Time , South African Standard Time and Kaliningrad Time in Russia . CONTENTS * 1 Names * 2 Period of observation * 3 Usage * 4 See also * 5 References NAMESOther names which have been applied to Central European Summer Time are Middle European Summer Time (MEST), Central European Daylight Saving Time (CEDT), and Bravo Time (after the second letter of the NATO phonetic alphabet ). PERIOD OF OBSERVATIONSince 1996 European Summer Time has been observed between 1:00 UTC on the last Sunday of March and 1:00 on the last Sunday of October; previously the rules were not uniform across the European Union. USAGEThe following countries and territories use Central European Summer Time

for details. The time zones actually in use in Europe
Europe
differ significantly from their "pure" theoretical variants as used for example under the nautical time system. Theoretically the world is divided into 24 time zones of 15 degrees. However, due to geographical and cultural factors it is not practical to divide the world so evenly and actual time zones may differ significantly from their theoretical borders. In Europe's case, the widespread use of the Central European Time Zone causes a major distortion in some areas from the theoretical time or the solar time . CET is theoretically centred on 15°E. However, Spain lying almost entirely in the Western hemisphere, and France with some regions to the west should theoretically use UTC, as they did before the Second World War. The general result is a solar noon which is much later than clock noon

Western European Time
WESTERN EUROPEAN TIME (WET, UTC±00:00 ) is a time zone covering parts of western and northwestern Europe . The following countries and regions use WET in winter months: * Canary Islands , since 1946 (rest of Spain is CET , UTC+1 ) * Faroe Islands , since 1908 * North Eastern Greenland ( Danmarkshavn and surrounding area) * Iceland , since 1968 * Portugal , since 1912 with pauses (except Azores , UTC−1 ) * Madeira Islands , since 1912 with pauses * Ireland , since 1916 (legally known as Greenwich Mean Time ) except between 1968 and 1971 * United Kingdom and Crown dependencies , since 1847 in England , Scotland , Wales , the Channel Islands , and the Isle of Man , and since 1916 in Northern Ireland (legally known as Greenwich Mean Time ), with pauses All the above countries except Iceland implement daylight saving time in summer, switching to Western European Summer Time (WEST, UTC+1 ), which is one hour ahead of WET. WEST is called British Summer Time in the UK and is officially known as Irish Standard Time in Ireland

NOTE: The islands of Cape Verde are to the west of the African mainland. GREENWICH MEAN TIME (GMT) is the mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich , London . GMT was formerly used as the international civil time standard, now superseded in that function by Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) . Today GMT is considered equivalent to UTC for UK civil purposes (but this is not formalised) and for navigation is considered equivalent to UT1 (the modern form of mean solar time at 0° longitude); these two meanings can differ by up to 0.9 s. Consequently, the term GMT should not be used for precise purposes

UTC
. During the winter, Greenwich Mean Time ( UTC+0 ) is used. The start and end dates of the scheme are asymmetrical in terms of daylight hours: the vernal time of year with a similar amount of daylight to late October is mid-February, well before the start of summer time. The asymmetry reflects temperature more than the length of daylight

British Summer Time
During BRITISH SUMMER TIME (BST), civil time in the United Kingdom is advanced one hour forward of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) (in effect, changing the time zone from UTC +0 to UTC+1), so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. BST begins at 01:00 GMT on the last Sunday of March and ends at 01:00 GMT (02:00 BST) on the last Sunday of October. Since 22 October 1995 the starting and finishing times of daylight saving time across the European Union have been aligned – for instance Central European Summer Time begins and ends on the same Sundays at exactly the same time (that is, 02:00 CET , which is 01:00 GMT). Between 1972 and 1995, BST began and ended at 02:00 GMT on the third Sunday in March (or second Sunday when Easter fell on the third) and fourth Sunday in October

Time In Ireland
Ireland uses IRISH STANDARD TIME (IST, UTC+01:00 ; Irish : Am Caighdeánach Éireannach) in the summer months and Greenwich Mean Time ( UTC+0
UTC+0
) in the winter period. In Ireland, the Standard Time Act 1968 legally established that the time for general purposes in the State (to be known as standard time) shall be one hour in advance of Greenwich mean time throughout the year. This act was amended by the Standard Time (Amendment) Act 1971, which legally established Greenwich Mean Time as a winter time period. Ireland therefore operates one hour behind standard time during the winter period, and reverts to standard time in the summer months. This is defined in contrast to the other states in the European Union
European Union
, which operate one hour ahead of standard time during the summer period, but produces the same end result. The instant of transition to and from daylight saving time is synchronised across Europe . In Ireland, Winter time begins at 02:00 IST on the last Sunday in October (changing to 01:00 GMT), and ends at 01:00 GMT on the last Sunday in March (changing to 02:00 IST)

UTC+03
UTC+03:00 is an identifier for a time offset from UTC of +03. In areas using this time offset, the time is three hours later than the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) . Following the ISO 8601 standard, a time with this offset would be written as, for example, 2017-08-08T05:53:13+03:00 (boldface only here to be clear). Some areas in the world use UTC+03:00 all year, other areas only part of the year. CONTENTS* 1 As standard time (all year round) * 1.1 Europe * 1.2 Africa * 1.3 Asia * 1.3.1 Arabia Standard Time
