National Time Service Center (NTSC) has the task of generating, maintaining and broadcasting standard time in China. It is located in Xi'an City, Shaanxi Province, China. Its predecessor was the Shaanxi Astronomy Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which was established in 1966. In March 2001, the Observatory was renamed to National Time Service Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
