23 March 2012 - BIS
Summer time will start on
Sunday 25 March at 1.00 am GMT throughout European Union Member States.
The clocks go forward an hour. This means that at 1.00 am (GMT) the UK
will move to 2.00 am British Summer Time (BST).
- The 9th EC Directive on summer time harmonised, for an
indefinite period, the dates on which summer time begins and ends
across member states as the last Sundays in March and October
respectively. Under the Directive, summer time begins and ends at 1.00
am GMT in each Member State. Amendments to the Summer Time Act to
implement the Directive came into force on 11 March 2002.
- Time zones are the responsibility of individual Member
States and vary across the EU. The UK has no current plans to move to
Central European Time.
