A time zone is a geographical region in which the same standard time is used.
You can use the class to retrieve information about the current time zone, and to convert times from local time to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) or vice versa. However, you cannot use the class to represent time zones other than the local zone or to handle date and time conversions from one time zone to another. For this purpose, use the class. You can use this class to retrieve information on any time zone defined on the local system, to create custom time zones, and to convert times from one time zone to another.
