There are no adjustments for latitude on time of meridian passage of a body. Just the east west of zone meridian arc to time adjustment.

For purposes of determining time of sun rise and set, I understand it is important for adjust time according to your latitude (and of course longitude); but, is it necessary to make adjustments based upon latitude when determining meridian transit? I suspect not; nevertheless I ask the question particularly with respect to the extremes as you approach the poles.
