The European Parliament said Europe should consider ending daylight saving time because of potential benefits for human health.
The European Union assembly urged the bloc’s regulators to reevaluate the merits of the decades-old practice of capitalizing on natural daylight by putting clocks forward by 60 minutes between late March and late October.
The 28-nation Parliament called on the European Commission, the EU’s regulatory arm, to conduct a ‘‘thorough assessment’’ of bloc-wide legislation on summertime arrangements.
The resolution approved on Thursday by the Strasbourg, France-based assembly also said the EU should maintain a unified time regime even after any end to daylight saving time, which the bloc began to regulate in the 1980s by harmonizing national practices. The goal was to prevent divergent approaches from undermining the European single market for transport, communications, and commerce.
The nonbinding resolution points to an October 2017 EU Parliament study saying that daylight saving time is associated with disruptions to the human biorhythm.
