29.11.8.1 Overview [time.zone.leap.overview]

namespace std::chrono { class leap_second { public: leap_second(const leap_second&) = default; leap_second& operator=(const leap_second&) = default; // unspecified additional constructors constexpr sys_seconds date() const noexcept; constexpr seconds value() const noexcept; }; }
Objects of type leap_­second representing the date and value of the leap second insertions are constructed and stored in the time zone database when initialized.
[Example 1: for (auto& l : get_tzdb().leap_seconds) if (l <= 2018y/March/17d) cout << l.date() << ": " << l.value() << '\n';
