Geek.Zone has chosen to uphold the UN Sustainable Development Goals in everything we do. To support this, we are also adopting relevant standards that help maintain best practice.

This format, which displays from the largest unit of time to the smallest, ensures that there is no possibility of ambiguity. While a more “traditional” date format might be dd-mm-yyyy, this could be confused with mm-dd-yyyy. Can you be sure whether 01-03-2019 means 1st March 2019 or January 3rd 2019? No! This is what the ISO 8601 standard avoids.
