Fellow time-nuts,

I think this might be of some interest.

I think the third paragraph is of interest, as it makes clear that owners of equipment have to ensure themselves that it will operate properly with regard to leap-seconds.

I think that for the most part, this is a fairly well written thing.
Another document is under works with DHS and I helped editing it towards this type of language.

There have been a raising awareness of the practical issues with use of GPS, and DHS has taken an increasing active role in producing recommendations, many of which is useful outside of the US. It's been interesting to provide input to this process and make them understand that mundane issues can pose a larger practical threat than intentional threats.

Oh, you might enjoy reading my own paper:
