What does UTC mean?
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) or Universal Time Coordinated (UTC), is the primary standard time based on International Atomic Time (TAI) with leap seconds added at irregular intervals to compensate for the change in Earth’s rotation. UTC is the time standard in which the world regulates the time.
The abbreviation UTC for Coordinated Universal Time arose from a desire by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the International Astronomical Union (IAU) to use the same abbreviation in all languages.
