Remarks
The International Earth Rotation Service (IERS) periodically introduces an intercalary adjustment to the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time scale in order to keep it in close agreement with the Universal Time (UT1) time scale. This adjustment amounts to a one second discontinuity, a leap second, in the UTC time scale that, in addition to the UT1 time scales, also affects transformations to other continuous time scales. Since the inception of leap seconds, all adjustments have been performed either at the end of 30 June or 31 December UTC though a leap second could, by rule, be applied at the end of any month.
