If you are using Raspian then there is a utility which allows you to specify the time zone and other setup otptions:
_ /usr/bin/raspi-config

If you are using a debian variation (including raspbian) you can do:
_ sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

(The time is set by contacting an NTP server, so you should have working internet access for it to set the time correctly, its the TZ you need to specify)

thanks
