United Kingdom (UK)

England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (usually shortened to United Kingdom or UK) is a country situated off the north-western coast of continental Europe and is surrounded by the North Sea, the English Channel, the Celtic Sea, the Irish Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

The UK is composed of four constituent parts: three constituent countries England, Scotland and Wales on the island of Great Britain and the province of Northern Ireland on the island of Ireland. The border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland forms the United Kingdom's principal international land border.  There is also a frontier with France at the Channel Tunnel with the French border control being on the English side of the English Channel (La Manche)!

The UK has several overseas territories throughout the world, relationships with several Crown dependencies and Commonwealth realms.

British Summer Time Rules

The summer-time periods begin and end respectively on the following dates at 01:00 GMT  (1.00am Greenwich Mean Time):

In 2006: the Sundays of 26 March and 29 October
In 2007: the Sundays of 25 March and 28 October
In 2008: the Sundays of 30 March and 26 October
In 2009: the Sundays of 29 March and 25 October
In 2010: the Sundays of 28 March and 31 October
In 2011: the Sundays of 27 March and 30 October
In 2012: the Sundays of 25 March and 28 October
In 2013: the Sundays of 31 March and 27 October
In 2014: the Sundays of 30 March and 26 October.

Since 1981 EC Directives have prescribed the start and end dates of summer time in all Member States.  There have to date been eight Directives which have set summer-time arrangements for fixed periods. The Summer Time Act 1972 sets the appropriate dates in the UK and summer-time orders have been made as necessary to implement the European Directives. The 9th EC Directive prescribes the start and end dates of summer time as the last Sundays in March and October respectively. These dates are in line with those already operating in the United Kingdom. The 9th Directive provides that these start and end dates should apply indefinitely.

Implementation of the 9th Directive in the UK is through an Order in Council under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972, which amended the relevant sections of the Summer Time Act 1972. The Order  came into force on 11 March 2002. A Regulatory Impact Assessment and Transposition Note were produced in conjunction with the laying of the Order.

Proposals have been made from time to time about changing the UK's time zone to Central European Time.  However, any changes would need to have full regard to the effect on business and transport links with other countries, on health and safety issues such as road traffic accidents, and on social and community life. A lthough there could be some advantages, adoption of Central European Time in the UK would result in later sunrise in winter, affecting particularly outdoor workers and people in the north of England and Scotland. 

There are no current plans to change the UK’s time zone.

Summer Time in the UK is known as British Summer Time (BST)
