Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. It is, within about 1 second, mean solar time at 0 longitude. It does not observe British Summer time / Daylight Saving Time and is one of several closely related successors to Greenwich Mean Time. For most purposes UTC is considered interchangeable with GMT but GMT is no longer precisely defined by the scientific community.
