How time is regulated in NSW


The regulation of time is a State Government responsibility. In New South Wales the Standard Time Act 1987 governs standard time and daylight saving. Changes to the period of daylight saving may be made by regulation.

Legislation to harmonise daylight saving in NSW with the south-astern states and the ACT was passed by the NSW Parliament on 23 October 2007.
