Universal Time Coordinated zone is also observed during standard time and daylight saving time for various geographic regions.
You need to be very careful finding time zones that may have different names and abbreviations:
Universal Coordinated Time or UTC
is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time.
The coordination of time and frequency transmissions around the world began on 1 January 1960.
Universal Coordinated Time was first officially adopted as CCIR Recommendation 374, Standard-Frequency and Time-Signal Emissions, in 1963.
But the official abbreviation of UTC and the official English name of Universal Time Coordinated were not adopted until 1967.
The previous standard was Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), but there is no practical difference that would be noticed by ordinary people.
Some experts use UTC because it does not make any country look more important than the others.
The same time can be used by people all over the world.
