You also can use hourglass (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/hourglass).
I think it is a good replacement to 'time'.
It also provides the ISO8601 Time format you need (see example below). I
hope this will help you.

import Data.Hourglass
import System.Hourglass

main :: IO ()
main = do
    tc <- timeCurrent
    putStrLn $ timePrint ISO8601_DateAndTime tc
