Assessment of daylight saving time. TAB-Fokus

Caviezel, C.; Revermann, Christoph


The Directive 2000/84/EC stipulates the application of daylight saving time arrangements as mandatory for all EU Member States for an unspecified period. Any change with regard to daylight saving time requires an amendment of this directive. In 2007, the European Commission concluded that daylight saving time would have only little impact. With regard to energetic aspects and based on the current state of knowledge, this conclusion still can be considered to be valid. Moreover, there are no indications to question this conclusion with regard to economic aspects. In view of health-related aspects, further research is required for an in-depth examination and evaluation of the short-term and long-term implications related to the time change. An amendment of the Directive 2000/84/EC can be proposed in different ways. Whether or not a corresponding legislative procedure will be initiated is at the discretion of the European Commission.
