DIA advises IT companies of New Zealand Daylight Saving Time changes
Posted on 7-Jun-2007 17:08 | Tags Filed under: News



The New Zealand Minister of Internal Affairs, Rick Barker, announced in April that the period of daylight saving in the country was being extended to 27 weeks. From this year, daylight saving will start on the last Sunday in September and end on the first Sunday in April the following year.

Accordingly, the next period of daylight saving will start on Sunday 30 September 2007 (when 2:00am becomes 3:00am) and end on Sunday 6 April 2008 (when 3:00am becomes 2:00am).

The only change is to the length of the period of daylight saving (daylight time). Daylight time is still one hour in advance of New Zealand standard time, and in the Chatham Islands, daylight time is still one hour and 45 minutes in advance of New Zealand standard time.

Deputy Secretary Keith Manch says IT providers will want to test their systems with the required changes before daylight saving commences on 30 September.

"We will follow up with a reminder to the regulators of the key sectors affected by the change to daylight saving, such as health and banking, recommending that they contact their IT providers about changes to programmes and any testing needs they have," Keith Manch said.
