Activities that require certification include 'production, import, sale, distribution and advertisement'. These apply to 'products pertaining to pharmacy, medical equipment, beauty and healthcare, food and beverages, [and] dietary supplements'. Twelve products have thus far been certified.

Accreditation is obtained through a 'nanotechnology committee affiliated to the Iranian food and drug organization'. This committee has been established 'with the primary objective of regulating food and health care related products' in the country.
