c0dbee2000-08-01Mirar (Pontus Hagland) # The mayor of Rio recently attempted to change the time zone rules # just in his city, in order to leave more summer time for the tourist trade. # The rule change lasted only part of the day; # the federal government refused to follow the city's rules, and business # was in a chaos, so the mayor backed down that afternoon. # From IATA SSIM (1996-02): # _Only_ the following states in BR1 observe DST: Rio Grande do Sul (RS),
dc03802014-08-18Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # Santa Catarina (SC), Paraná (PR), São Paulo (SP), Rio de Janeiro (RJ), # Espírito Santo (ES), Minas Gerais (MG), Bahia (BA), Goiás (GO),

dc03802014-08-18Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # Geography, history (Tocantins was part of Goiás until 1989), and other
c0dbee2000-08-01Mirar (Pontus Hagland) # sources of time zone information lead me to believe that AL, SE, and TO were # always in BR1, and so the only change was whether or not they observed DST.... # The earliest issue of the SSIM I have is 2/91. Each issue from then until # 9/95 says that DST is observed only in the ten states I quoted from 9/95, # along with Mato Grosso (MT) and Mato Grosso do Sul (MS), which are in BR2 # (UTC-4).... The other two time zones given for Brazil are BR3, which is # UTC-5, no DST, and applies only in the state of Acre (AC); and BR4, which is # UTC-2, and applies to Fernando de Noronha (formerly FN, but I believe it's # become part of the state of Pernambuco). The boundary between BR1 and BR2 # has never been clearly stated. They've simply been called East and West. # However, some conclusions can be drawn from another IATA manual: the Airline # Coding Directory, which lists close to 400 airports in Brazil. For each # airport it gives a time zone which is coded to the SSIM. From that
dc03802014-08-18Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # information, I'm led to conclude that the states of Amapá (AP), Ceará (CE), # Maranhão (MA), Paraíba (PR), Pernambuco (PE), Piauí (PI), and Rio Grande do # Norte (RN), and the eastern part of Pará (PA) are all in BR1 without DST.

2440ca2003-03-30Mirar (Pontus Hagland) # From Celso Doria via David Madeo (2002-10-09): # The reason for the delay this year has to do with elections in Brazil. # # Unlike in the United States, elections in Brazil are 100% computerized and # the results are known almost immediately. Yesterday, it was the first # round of the elections when 115 million Brazilians voted for President, # Governor, Senators, Federal Deputies, and State Deputies. Nobody is # counting (or re-counting) votes anymore and we know there will be a second # round for the Presidency and also for some Governors. The 2nd round will # take place on October 27th. # # The reason why the DST will only begin November 3rd is that the thousands # of electoral machines used cannot have their time changed, and since the # Constitution says the elections must begin at 8:00 AM and end at 5:00 PM, # the Government decided to postpone DST, instead of changing the Constitution # (maybe, for the next elections, it will be possible to change the clock)...
84701a2007-02-01Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # From Rodrigo Severo (2004-10-04): # It's just the biannual change made necessary by the much hyped, supposedly # modern Brazilian eletronic voting machines which, apparently, can't deal # with a time change between the first and the second rounds of the elections.

ecc1102009-03-20Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # effective today (00:00am at June 24, 2008) as follows: #
1e27ed2014-09-04Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # a) The timezone UTC+5 is extinguished, with all the Acre state and the
ecc1102009-03-20Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # part of the Amazonas state that had this timezone now being put to the # timezone UTC+4
dc03802014-08-18Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # b) The whole Pará state now is put at timezone UTC+3, instead of just
ecc1102009-03-20Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # part of it, as was before. # # This change follows a proposal of senator Tiao Viana of Acre state, that # proposed it due to concerns about open television channels displaying # programs inappropriate to youths in the states that had the timezone # UTC+5 too early in the night. In the occasion, some more corrections # were proposed, trying to unify the timezones of any given state. This # change modifies timezone rules defined in decree 2.784 of 18 June, # 1913. # From Rodrigo Severo (2008-06-24): # Just correcting the URL:

ecc1102009-03-20Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # suggest this new timezone be called Santarem as the most # important/populated city in the affected area. # # This new timezone would be the same as the Rio_Branco timezone up to # the 2008/06/24 change which would be to UTC-3 instead of UTC-4. # From Alex Krivenyshev (2008-06-24): # This is a quick reference page for New and Old Brazil Time Zones map. # http://www.worldtimezone.com/brazil-time-new-old.php #
dc03802014-08-18Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # - 4 time zones replaced by 3 time zones - eliminating time zone UTC-05 # (state Acre and the part of the Amazonas will be UTC/GMT-04) - western # part of Par state is moving to one timezone UTC-03 (from UTC-04).

2440ca2003-03-30Mirar (Pontus Hagland) # ... the clocks revert back to Local Mean Time at 2 am on Sunday 15 # April 2001 and advance one hour to summer time at 2 am on Sunday 2 # September. It is anticipated that the clocks will revert back at 2 # am on Sunday 21 April 2002 and advance to summer time at 2 am on # Sunday 1 September. # From Rives McDow (2001-02-13): # # I have communicated several times with people there, and the last # time I had communications that was helpful was in 1998. Here is # what was said then: # # "The general rule was that Stanley used daylight saving and the Camp # did not. However for various reasons many people in the Camp have # started to use daylight saving (known locally as 'Stanley Time') # There is no rule as to who uses daylight saving - it is a matter of # personal choice and so it is impossible to draw a map showing who # uses it and who does not. Any list would be out of date as soon as # it was produced. This year daylight saving ended on April 18/19th # and started again on September 12/13th. I do not know what the rule # is, but can find out if you like. We do not change at the same time # as UK or Chile." # # I did have in my notes that the rule was "Second Saturday in Sep at # 0:00 until third Saturday in Apr at 0:00". I think that this does # not agree in some cases with Shanks; is this true? # # Also, there is no mention in the list that some areas in the # Falklands do not use DST. I have found in my communications there # that these areas are on the western half of East Falkland and all of # West Falkland. Stanley is the only place that consistently observes # DST. Again, as in other places in the world, the farmers don't like # it. West Falkland is almost entirely sheep farmers. # # I know one lady there that keeps a list of which farm keeps DST and # which doesn't each year. She runs a shop in Stanley, and says that # the list changes each year. She uses it to communicate to her # customers, catching them when they are home for lunch or dinner. # From Paul Eggert (2001-03-05): # For now, we'll just record the time in Stanley, since we have no # better info.
fea1f12011-09-20Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # From Steffen Thorsen (2011-04-01): # The Falkland Islands will not turn back clocks this winter, but stay on # daylight saving time. # # One source: # http://www.falklandnews.com/public/story.cfm?get=5914&source=3 # # We have gotten this confirmed by a clerk of the legislative assembly: # Normally the clocks revert to Local Mean Time (UTC/GMT -4 hours) on the # third Sunday of April at 0200hrs and advance to Summer Time (UTC/GMT -3 # hours) on the first Sunday of September at 0200hrs. # # IMPORTANT NOTE: During 2011, on a trial basis, the Falkland Islands # will not revert to local mean time, but clocks will remain on Summer # time (UTC/GMT - 3 hours) throughout the whole of 2011. Any long term # change to local time following the trial period will be notified.
03d5bb2012-04-28Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # # From Andrew Newman (2012-02-24) # A letter from Justin McPhee, Chief Executive, # Cable & Wireless Falkland Islands (dated 2012-02-22) # states... # The current Atlantic/Stanley entry under South America expects the # clocks to go back to standard Falklands Time (FKT) on the 15th April. # The database entry states that in 2011 Stanley was staying on fixed # summer time on a trial basis only. FIG need to contact IANA and/or # the maintainers of the database to inform them we're adopting # the same policy this year and suggest recommendations for future years. #

Assume the corresponding LMT of UT-03:44:51 (given on # page 725 of the Proceedings of the Second Pan-American Scientific Congress, # 1915-1916) was in use, and merely became official from 1908-06-10. # https://www.impo.com.uy/diariooficial/1908/06/18/12 # https://www.impo.com.uy/diariooficial/1920/04/27/9 # # Ley No. 7594 of 1923-06-28 specified legal time as Observatory time advanced # by 44 minutes 51 seconds (UT-03) "from 30 September to 31 March", and by 14 # minutes 51 seconds (UT-03:30) "the rest of the year"; a message from the # National Council of Administration the same day, published directly below the # law in the Diario Oficial, specified the first transition to be 1923-09-30 # 24:00. This effectively established standard time at UT-03:30 with 30 # minutes DST. Assume transitions at 24:00 on the specified days until Ley No. # 7919 of 1926-03-05 ended this arrangement, repealing all "laws and other # provisions which oppose" it, resulting in year-round UT-03:30; a Resolución # of 1926-03-11 puts the final transition at 1926-03-31 24:00, the same as it # would have been under the previous law. # https://www.impo.com.uy/diariooficial/1923/07/02/2 # https://www.impo.com.uy/diariooficial/1926/03/10/2 # https://www.impo.com.uy/diariooficial/1926/03/18/2 #

07968a2018-09-05Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # From Tim Parenti (2018-02-15): # http://www.impo.com.uy/diariooficial/1933/10/27/6 # # It appears Ley No. 9122 of 1933 was never published as such in the Diario # Oficial, but instead appeared as Document 26 in the Diario on Friday # 1933-10-27 as a decree made Monday 1933-10-23 and filed under the Ministry of # National Defense. It reinstituted a DST of 30 minutes (to UT-03) "from the # last Sunday of October...until the last Saturday of March." In accordance # with this provision, the first transition was explicitly specified in Article # 2 of the decree as Saturday 1933-10-28 at 24:00; that is, Sunday 1933-10-29 # at 00:00. Assume transitions at 00:00 Sunday throughout. # # Departing from the matter-of-fact nature of previous timekeeping laws, the # 1933 decree "consider[s] the advantages of...the advance of legal time": # # "Whereas: The measure adopted by almost all nations at the time of the last # World War still persists in North America and Europe, precisely because of # the economic, hygienic, and social advantages derived from such an # emergency measure... # # Whereas: The advance of the legal time during the summer seasons, by # displacing social activity near sunrise, favors the citizen populations # and especially the society that creates and works..." # # It further specified that "necessary measures" be taken to ensure that # "public spectacles finish, in general, before [01:00]." Rule Uruguay 1933 1938 - Oct lastSun 0:00 0:30 - Rule Uruguay 1934 1941 - Mar lastSat 24:00 0 - # From Tim Parenti (2018-02-15): # Most of the Rules below, and their contemporaneous Zone lines, have been # updated simply to match the Almanaque 2018. Although the document does not # list exact transition times, midnight transitions were already present in our # data here for all transitions through 2004-09, and this is both consistent # with prior transitions and verified in several decrees marked below between # 1939-09 and 2004-09, wherein the relevant text was typically of the form: # # "From 0 hours on [date], the legal time of the entire Republic will be... # # In accordance with [the preceding], on [previous date] at 24 hours, all # clocks throughout the Republic will be [advanced/retarded] by..." # # It is possible that there is greater specificity to be found for the Rules # below, but it is buried in no fewer than 40 different decrees individually # referenced by the Almanaque for the period from 1939-09 to 2014-09. # Four-fifths of these were promulgated less than two weeks before taking # effect; more than half within a week and none more than 5 weeks.
