Daylight Saving Time (Summer Time)

The EDGAR charts provided are accurate throughout most of the year. However, not all countries switch to and from Daylight Saving Time on the same day. Daylight Saving Time is called Summer Time in many countries. This may create a disparity of one hour during the spring , when clocks are set forward one hour, and during the fall, when clocks are set back one hour.
