What is Standard Iran Time?

You need to keep in mind that Standard Iran Time zone is an identifier for a time offset that is 3:30 hours ahead of the UTC time zone.

This time pattern is maintained using highly accurate atomic clocks matched to the Earth's rotation.

Please be aware that Daylight Saving Time (DST) is not used in this time zone.

During the summer, clocks go forward one hour to the UTC+4:30 offset and Iran Daylight Time is used.
