Again New Zealand DST: have you updated and tested your systems?

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 6-Aug-2007 19:48

This is another reminder for you IT admins out there to udpate and test your systems before the updated New Zealand DST comes into force.

I have discussed about this before and it appears now some patches are available for Microsoft Windows systems.

The links to a Microsot Australia Technet page, which seems to be a more updated version of the Microsoft New Zealand Timezone page.


The [New Zealand] Minister of Internal Affairs, Rick Barker, announced in April that the period of daylight saving 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. 


If you have doubts or need help, contact your Microsoft representative.

For other systems, check the comments in my previous posts here and here.
