What does the acronym UTC, which appears on the certificate, stand for?

The acronym 'UTC' stands for 'Coordinated Universal Time.' It is the worldwide standard for timekeeping, serving as the basis for time measurement in different time zones. It is also colloquially known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), although there is a small technical difference between GMT and UTC. UTC is used to synchronize clocks and events worldwide.

UTC is the time unit we use at SaveTheProof for issuing certificates, ensuring that the time reflected in the document is not subject to interpretation but is an absolute and reproducible value globally.
