Hello Kurt,

Indeed, some time ago a client of RenderX reported a bug related to
dates and PDF/A: the date must be in proper format and it must be GMT.
We've changed the code accordingly.

At the moment there is no way to change time back to local, except for
changing the machine time, which is weird.

If you really need this, we can consider implementing support for a
processing instruction, e.g. like <?xep-pdf-time-zone local?>. In that
case, please contact
