Chatham Island Standard Time (CHAST)

The differences of the several time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Coordinated Universal Time" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). The Chatham Island Standard Time is consistent with UTC +12:45.

Countries with the Chatham Island Standard Time, in which a switch to daylight saving time is common, turn the clock forward by 1 hour in summer. Like this they switch to Chatham Island Daylight Time (CHADT) and reach UTC +13:45.

The Chatham Island Standard Time applies only to some parts of New Zealand.
