Daylight Saving Time–first half of 2015

Daylight saving time is often incorrectly referred to as “daylight savings time”. In some countries, it is also called “summer time”. When DST is not observed, it is called standard time, normal time or winter time.

This list displays a brief (but not complete) overview over which countries and territories that plan to observe DST during first half of 2015. Note that the list might not be final - countries, territories and states sometimes make adjustments that are announced just days or weeks ahead of the change.

This table is sorted by UTC time, in the order the changes occur.

Also see the page for second half of 2015 or the overview over start and end times for 2015 sorted by country.
