Spain modifies the clock twice a year with the aim of optimizing the use of the sun and by the way keeping it sharper. Time is the so-called change that occurs when we move the clocks forward or backward to adapt to summer or winter time.
A few days, specifically the next on March 26, 2023The light switch will be time saving. At 02:00 am, it will be 03:00 am, and we will have a few more hours of light, although we will also lose an hour of sleep that day.
But The days of changing habits could be numbered and to verify, all you have to do is to the Public Gazette (BOE), where the latest change in Spain is published.
Called experts to remove the change of time
With each passing year, the time of change raises great controversy among many experts who are against the measure. In 2018, More than 80% of the 4.6 million Europeans who took part in a public consultation on the matter were in favor of ending the annual clock changes and the European Commission proposed to end this practice in 2019.
Despite setting 2019 as a deadline, it was finally extended until 2021, a decision not effective due to the disagreement of its member states as to when the slot should be adopted in each country. Currently, the decision is in the air due to a proposal by the European Commission, in which they propose to change the method of ending the rule, although it has not yet been approved; so we will have to wait.
When is the last time to change in Spain?
What part does Spain have? As a result of the European initiative, Spain created a Commission of experts to study the change of time, which addressed, among other issues. the advantage of preserving the country at the same time as Europe central
And the Official State Gazette, in its publication on March 15, collected the seasonal changes that continue to occur. Why was it published so far in advance? To comply with Article 5 of Royal Decree 236/2002, which determines that a specific calendar with these dates should be published every five years.
A change, therefore, of the last time will take place in our country at least; on October 25, 2026when the winter season would return. however everything is subject to the proposal of the European Commission which, if approved, should remove this calendar and reveal a new day.
