This statement is ANSI SQL:2011 compliant.

As an extension to ANSI, CAST permits the use of DATE data attribute phrases, such as FORMAT that enables an alternative format.

The AT clause is ANSI SQL:2011 compliant.

As an extension to ANSI, the AT clause is supported when using CAST to convert from TIMESTAMP to DATE. In addition, you can specify the time zone displacement using additional expressions besides an INTERVAL expression.

TIMESTAMP (without time zone) is not ANSI SQL:2011 compliant. Teradata Database internally converts a TIMESTAMP value to UTC based on the current session time zone or on a specified time zone.
