Introduction of Codes and Conducts Formulation Group

Rapid changes so far experienced in various socio-economic, political and technological fields on one hand, and other requirements e.g. developmental schemes, special rules and regulations in agriculture sector, annual budget act as well as Ministerial plans and projects on another, have made affiliated offices/units tackle with new conditions and adopt new actions and tools to promote their missions in the sector. To this end, regulation of ongoing codes and norms ruling on the work processes seems crucial strategy in managing threats and opportunities. The idea was undertaken by the Dept. in 2001 leading to amendments in certain codes and instructions of the working processes and improvement of operational procedures.

The new decision involved many ideas and perspectives pledged by the Dept. and employed updated techniques and capacities shared by various offices, private consultants and the following pinpoints:

  • Acts, policies and guidelines associated with agribusinesses including:

- Supreme Leader’s insights, National Services Act, Road Map for renovation of Administrative System, The 5th National Development Plan, Annual Budget Act, Higher Productivity Act in Agriculture and Natural Resource, Animal Farming System Act, Article 44 in Constitution, etc.;

- Prioritization and derivation of core standards, codes and conducts in favor of improved operational processes, facilitated investments and cultivation, better service rendering to applicants, higher productivity and accountability to official authorities;

- Maximum utilization of ICT towards mechanization of working processes;

- Interaction and cooperation with Agricultural Engineering System Organization, experts and others;

- Participation of all horticultural levels in formulation of operational rules and guidelines followed by close monitoring on their sound implication;
