That very sensible convention was invented by WHO (the drs; as inb World Health Organisation; not The Dr.)

The concept was simple

Month - Roman

Day - one or two digits

Year - always 4 digits

12 VII 2018 or 2018 12 VII or VII 2018 12

It is ALWAYS un-ambiguous; never understood why it didn’t catch on
