Just starting to read this book. Seems like the timeline's been pushed forward to 2389 or 2390 in this book, since since page 8 mentions that its been nearly 25 years since "Measure Of A Man" in 2365.
No, Cold Equations takes place in 2384. That's just an erroneous statement.
Seems like there are quite a few "erroneous statements" within the first four chapters of the book that place its date anywhere within 2385-2390.
And it's just awful when characters make errors like that. Real people never get their dates wrong and always speak with mathematical precision!

Cold Equations is set in 2384.
