Courtesy time signature
A musical notation provided by the composer (or music editor) to warn the performer that the time signature will be changing on the
next staff. This notation is always placed after the last barline on a staff when a new time signature begins on the following staff.
In this situation, the end of the staff or system would be open with no barline and a double bar should be placed before the courtesy time signature at the end of the staff or system.
