    The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was passed by the United States Congress on July 29, 2005 and signed into law on August 8, 2005. This law changes the time-change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the United States. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November. In addition to the U.S., Canada and Bermuda have decided to change their DST dates in 2007 to follow the same time zone rules. For general IBM information on this update, refer to the Daylight Saving Time alert page.

    This Technote explains how this change is being implemented on IBM System i servers.
