http://www.worldtimezone.com/dst_news/dst_news_morocco06.htmlSeveral things to
check here:1. The infomediarie.ma reference indicates that the change
happens "chaque année";
> this means it is a matter of policy for every year going forward rather
than for just this year, yes?2. The infomediarie.ma reference specifies
a "fall back" time of 03H00,
> but no time of day is specified for the spring forward--is that time of
day expected to be 2:00 a.m.?3. For the "no DST during the month of Ramadan"
exception, is it known whether a. clocks will be adjusted on the first day of
Ramadan, the day before the
> first day, the Sunday before the first day of Ramadan, or the Sunday
on or before the first day of Ramadan? b. clocks will be adjusted on the
day after Ramadan or the first Sunday after Ramadan?
> c. the time of day when the Ramadan adjustments are made?Thanks for any
light folks can shed. --ado
1. Yes, every year DST starts at last Sunday of March and ends at last Sunday
2. According to pic from Marrakesh web site:
spring forward expected to be 2:00 a.m ...
however have to wait for official docs.
