The Commercial Code of Iran (adopted in 1932) is the most important set of laws related to commercial affairs in Iran, which forms the basis of Iranian commercial law. The vast majority of Iranian jurists consider the law inadequate, overly incomplete, and vague. In this regard, and accepting the need for amendment, we review the trade bill that has been prepared for this purpose. Given the complexity of the topic, we will only look at the definition of a trader and business practices in the new bill, which is the foundation of the Commercial Code and distinguishes the trader from the non-trader. For this purpose, we first state the main goals of the bill and then examine the success or failure of achieving these goals. Finally, since e-commerce oversees the use of electronic communications in the business process and is a means of doing business, it is inevitable to refer to the corresponding concept in e-commerce law, the concept of "supplier". After analysing the issue, we concluded that by comparing Articles 1 and 2 of the current Commercial Code with Article 1 of the bill, the fundamental changes considered by the Office of Economic Studies of the Deputy Minister of Planning and Economy are not visible, so it cannot be considered a strength listed the innovations of this amendment.
