Now, technically this date was not correctly written.
There are usually 7 digits, before the M.##.
The first one refers to the accuracy of the date, the next three are the 1000th of the year, sort of like month and day, although there are about 3 1000ths each day. The next three are the year of the millenium, and the last bit is the millenium.
So here, on Terra, we're currently at 1472005.M03.

Easy eh?

As stated above, this is an inaccurate date.

Firstly, the Imperial Prefix is missing. This means there is no Astropathic link to Terra, and we must conclude this is not, in fact, an Imperial date.

Administratum add prefix 9.

Next is 52... which seems to echo the Imperial system. Again, however, it is inaccurate. The two-digit code is void, leading us to conclude it is either a bastardised form of the Imperial Calender, or an appauling forgery. I shall request assistance in recovering the time-indexed data file this belongs to, and have it assessed. We will assume, however, that the blank represents a 0.

Administratum add 0.

376.M41 is an accepted Imperial date, namely the 376th year in the 41st millenium, or 40376 in the archaic calender.

Corrected date: 9052376.M41

I was just reading backwards and translating it how it was in the book. Gotta admit though, it did look wrong.
