Newfoundland Standard Time is three and a half hours behind the Coordinated Universal Time standard, written as an offset of UTC - 3:30. That means to find the standard time in the zone you must subtract three and a half hours from Coordinated Universal Time.

Newfoundland Standard Time is what is referred to as a non-standard half-hour time zone. This is because the local time in the zone differs by 30 minutes, as opposed to the full hour difference you find in most other time zones.

Territories observing the time zone are primarily in North America. It runs through Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada. In French, this time zone is also called Heure Normale de Terre-Neuve or HNT.

During fall to winter months Newfoundland Standard Time is used, and then during Daylight Saving (spring to summer months) Newfoundland Daylight Time or NDT is used.
