peaceful, indigenous nuclear programme, in line with scientific and economic
considerations, in accordance wittÿ the JCPOA, and with a view to building
confidence and encouraging international cooperation. In Hÿis context, the initial

mutually determined limitations described in this JCPOA will be followed by a
gradual evolution, at a reasonable pace, of Iran's peaceful nuclear programme.
including its enrichment activities, to a commercial programme for exclusively
peaceful purposes, consistent with international non-proliferation norms.

The E3/EU+3 envision that the implementation of this JCPOA will progressively
allow them to gain confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's
programme. The JCPOA reflects mutually determined parameters, consistent with
practical needs, with agreed limits on the scope of Iran's nuclear programme,

including enrichment activities and R&D. The JCPOA addresses the E3iEU+3"s
concerns, .including through comprehensive measures providing for transparency
and verification.

The JCPOA will produce the comprehensive lifting of al UN Security Council
sanctions as well as multilateral and national sanctions related to iran's nuclear
programme, including sleps on access in areas of trade, technolo.gy, finance, and
energy.

During the 15 yea] period, and as h'an gradually moves to meet in!ernational
qualification standards for nuclear fuel produced in Iran. it will keep its
uranium stockpile under 300 kg of up to 3.67c,ÿ enriched uranium hexafluoride
(UF6) or the equivalent in other chemical forms. The excess quantities are to
be sold based on international prices and delivered to the international buyer in
return for natural uranium delivered to Iran, or are to be down-blended to
natural uranium level. Enriched uranium in fabricated fuel assemblies from
Russia or other sources for use in Iran's nuclear reactors will not be counted

against the above stated 300 kg UF6 stockpile, if lhe crheria set out in Annex I
are met whh regard Io other sources. The Joint Commission will support
assistance to lran. includine throt>,h IAEA technical cooperation as
appropriate, in meeling internalional qualification standards for nuclear fucl
produced in Iran. All remaining uranium oxide enriched lo between 59ÿ and

ARAK, HEAVY WATER, REPROCESSING
Iran will redesign and rebuild a modernised heavy water rcscarch reactor in
Arak, based on an agreed conceptual design, using fuel enriched up to 3.67 qÿ,
in a form {/1" an international partnership which will certify the final design.
The reactor will support peaceful nuclear research and radioisotope production
for medical and industrial purposes. The redesigned and rebuilt Arak reactor
will nol produce weapons grade plutonium. Except for the firsl core load, all
of the activities lk)r redesigning and manufacturing of the fuel assemblies for
lhe redesigned reactor will be carried out in Iran. All spent fuel from Arak will
be shipped out of Iran for the lifetime of the reactor. This international

partnership will include participaling E3/EU+3 parties, Iran and such other
counlries as may be mutually determined, lran wil! Iake the leadership role as
the owner and as the project manager and the E3iEU+3 and h'an will, before
Implementation Day, conclude an official document which would define the

responsibilities assumed by the E3/EU+3 participants.
.

Iran plans to keep pace with the trend of international technological
advancement in relying on light water for its future power and research
reactors with enhanced international cooperation, including assurance of
supply of necessary fuel.

10.

There will be no additional heavy water reactors or accumulation of heavy
waler in Iran for 15 years. All excess heavy water will be made available for
export to the international market.

11.

Iran intends t{/ ship out all spent fuel for all future and present power and
research nuclear reactors, for further treatment or disposition as provided for
in relevant contracts to be duly concluded with the recipient parly.

If han believed that anÿ or aH of the E3/EU+3 were noÿ meeting their
commitments under this ]CP()A, Iran could reÿ%r the issue to the Juim
Commission for resoludon: similarb,< if any of the E3!EU+3 bdi e,,ed ÿhat Iran
was noÿ meeting its eomnÿhments mÿder this JCPOA. any of the E3/EU+3
could do ÿhe same. The Joint Commission would have 15 days to resohe the
issue, unless the time period was extended by consetlsus, After Joint
Commission consideration, any paHicipanl could retkr the issue ÿo Ministers of
Foreign Affairs, if it believed the comp!iance issue had ÿot been resoh'ed.

t 9/I 04

Si2015/547

Ministers would have 15 days to resolve the issue, unless the time period was
extended by consensus. After Joint Commission consideration - in parallel
with (or in lieu of) review at the Ministerial le,ÿel - either the complaining
participant or tile participant whose performance is in question could request
that the issue be considered by an Advisory Board. which would consist of
three members (one each appointed by the participants in the dispute and a
third independent member). The Advisory Board should provide a non-binding
opinion on the compliance issue within !5 days. If, after this 30-day process
the issue is not resolved, the Joint Commission would consider the opinion of
the Advisory Board for no more than 5 days in order to resolve the issue. If the
issue still has not been resolved to the satisfaction of the complaining
participant, and if the complaining participant deems the issue to constitute
significant non-performance, then that participant could treat the unresolved
issue as grounds to cease performing its commitments under this JCPOA in

whole or in part and/or notify the UN Security Council that it believes the
issue constitutes significant non-performance.
37.

Upon receipt of the notification from {he complaining participant, as described
above, including a description of the good-faith efforts the participant made to

exhaust ttÿe dispute resolution process specified in this JCPOA, the UN
Security Council, in accordance with its procedures, shall vote on a resolution
to continue the sanctions lifting. If the resolution described above has nol been

adopted within 30 days of tile notification, then the provisions of the old UN
Security Council resolutions would be re-imposed, unless the UN Security
Council decides otherwise. In such event, these provisions would not apply
with retroactive effect to contracts signed between any party and 1ran or
Iranian individuals and entities prior to tile date of application, provided tllat
the activities contemplated under and execution of such contracts are
consistent with this JCPOA and the previous and current UN Security Council
resolutions. The UN Security Council, expressing its intention to prevent the

reapplication of the provisions if the issue giving rise to the notification is
resolved within this period, intends to take into account the views of the States
involved in the issue and any opinion on the issue of the Advisory Board. han
has stated that if sanctions are reinstated in whole or in part, Iran will treat that
as grounds to cease performing its commitments under this JCPOA in whole or
in part.

that the reactor can be licensed by the relevanl Iranian regulatory authority for
comnaisshming and operation. The final design of the modernised reactor and

the design of the subsidiary laboratories will be submitlcd to the Joint
Commission. The Joint Commissh>n will aim to complete its review and
endorsement within three months after the submission of the final design. If
the Joint Commission does not complete its review and endorsement within
three months, h'an could raise the issue (hrouÿ,he the dispute resolution
mechanism envisaged by this JCPOA.

6ÿ

The 1AEA will monitor the construction and report to the Working Group for
confirmation that the construction of the modernised reactor is consistent with
the approved final design.

7.

As the project manager, Iran will take responsibility for the construction
efforts. E3/EU+3 parties will, consistent with theil" national laws, take
appropriate administrative, legal, technical, and regulatory measures to
support co-operation.

E3/EU+3 parties will support the purchase by lran, Ihe lransfer and supply of
necessary materials, equipment, instrumentation and control systems and
technologies required for the construction of the redesigned reactor, through

the mechanism established by this JCP()A, as well as through exploration of
relevant funding contributions.

E3!EU+3 parties wilt also support and facilitate the timely and safe
construction of the modernized Arak reactor and its subsidiary laboratories,
upon request by Iran, through IAEA technical cooperation if appropriate,
including but not limited lo technical and financial assistance, supply of
required materials and equipment, state-of-the-art inslrumemation and control
systems and equipment and support for licensing and authorization.
,

The redesigned reactor will use up to 3.67 percent enriched uraniurn in the

form of UO2 with a mass of approximately 350 kg of UO2 in a full core load,
with a fuel design to be reviewed and approved by the Joint Commission. The

inlernational partnership with the participation of Iran will fabricate the initial
fuel core load for the reactor outside lran. The international partnership will
cooperate with Dan, including through technical assistance, to fabricate, test
and license fuel fabrication capabilities in Iran tkÿr subsequent fuel core reloads
for future use with this reactor. Destructive and non-destructive testing of this
fuel including Post-Irradiation-Examination (PIE) will take place in one of {he
participating countries outside of lran and that country will work with Dan to
license the subsequent fuel fabricated in Iran for the use in the redesigned
reactor under IAEA monitoring.
10.

Iran will not produce or test natural uranium pellets, fuel pins or fuel

assemblies, which are specifically designed for the support of the originally
designed Arak reactor, designated by the IAEA as IR-40. Dan will slore under
IAEA continuous monitoring all existing natural uranium pellets and IR-40
fuel assemblies until the modernised Arak reactor becomes operational, at
which point these natural uranium pellets and IR-40 fuel assemblies will be
converted to UNH, or exchanged with an equivalent quantity of natural
uranium. Iran will make the necessary technical modifications to the natural

h'an will test a single IR-5 centrifuge machine for 10 years.

37.

h'an will continue testing of the IR-6 on single centrifuge machines and its
intermediate cascades and will commence testing of up to 30 centrifuge
machines from one and a halt" years before tile end of year 10. Iran will
proceed from single centrifuge machines and small cascades to intermediate
cascades in a h)gical sequence.

38.

Iran will commence, upon start of implementation of the JCPOA, testing of the
IR-8 on single centrifu*,e machines and its intermediate cascades and will
commence the testing of up to 30 centrifuges machines from one and a half
years before the end of year 10. Iran will proceed from single centrifuges to
small cascades to intermediate cascades in a logical sequence.

39.

For 10 years, Dan, consistent with the established practice, will recombine the
enriched and depleted streams from the IR-6 and IR-8 cascades through the
use of welded pipework on withdrawal main headers in a manner that
precludes Ihe wiflÿdrawat of enriched and depleted uranium materials and

verified by the IAEA.
40.

For 15 years, Iran will conduct all testing of centrifuges with uranium only at
the PFEP. Iran will conduct all mechanical testing of centrifuges only al the
PFEP and the Tchran Research Centre.

41.

For tile purpose tel" adapting PFEP to the R&D activities in Hae cm-ichment and
enrichment R&D plan. Dan will remove all centrifuges except those needed for
testing as described in the relevant paragraphs above, except for tile IR-1
cascade (No. 1) as described below. For file full IR-I cascade (No. 6), Iran will
modify associated intÿastructure by removing UF6 pipework, including
sub-headers, valves and pressure transducers at cascade level, and frequency
inverters. The IR-I cascade (No. 1) centrifuges will be kept but made
inoperable, as verified by the IAEA, through the removal of centrifuge rolors
and the injection of epoxy resin into the sub headers, feeding, product, and
tails pipework, and the removal of controls and electrical systems for vacuum,
power and cooling. Excess centrifuges and infrastructure will be stored at
Natanz in Hall B of FEP under IAEA continuous monitoring. The R&D space

in line No. 6 will be left empty until Iran needs to use it for its R&D
programme,
42.

Consislent with the activities in the enrichment and enrichment R&D plan,
han will maintain the cascade infrastructure for testing of single centrifuges
and small and intermediate cascades in two R&D lines (No. 2 and No. 3) and
will adapt two other lines (No. 4 and No. 5) with infrastructure similar to that
for lines No. 2 and No. 3 in order to enable future R&D activities as specified

in this JCPoA. Adaptation will include modification of all UF6 pipework
(including removal of all sub headers except as agreed as needed for the R&D
programme) and associated instrumentation to be compatible will1 single
centrifuges and small and intermediate cascade testing instead of full scale
testing.
43.

Consistent with its plan and internationally established practices, Iran intends
to continue R&D on new types of centrifuges through computer modelling and
simulations, including at universities. For any such project to proceed to a

L.

Consistent with its plan, at the end of year 8, lran will cormnence
manufacturing of IR-6 and IR-8 centrifuges without rotors through year 10 at a
rate of up to 200 centrifuges per year for each type. After year 10. Iran wilt
produce complele centrifuges with the same rate to meet its enrichment and
enrichment R&D needs. Iran wilt store them at Natanz in an above ground
location, under IAEA continuous monitoring, until they arc needed for final
assembly according to the enrichment and enrichment R&D plan.

by the IAEA. Io relevant buildings at Natanz, including all parts of lhe FEP
and PFEK for 15 years.

Q.

72.

For 15 years, the Natanz enrichment site will be tile sole location for all of
Iran's uranium enrichment related activities including safeguarded R&D.

73.

han intends to apply nuclear export policies and practices in line with the
internationally established standards for the export of nuclear material,
equipment and technology. For 15 years, han will only engage, including
through export of any enrichment or enrichment related equipment and
technology, with any other country, or with any foreign entity in enrichment or
enrichmenl related activities, including related research and developmenI
activities, following approval by the Joint Commission.

ACCESS
74.

Requests for access pursuanl to provisions of this JCPOA will be made in
good faith, with due observance of the sovereign rights of Iran, and kept to the
minimum necessary to effectively implement the verification responsibilities
under this JCPOA. In line with normal international safeguards practice, such
requests will not be aimed at interfering with Iranian military or other national
security activities, but will be exclusively for resolving concerns regarding
fulfilment of tile JCPOA commitments and Iran's other non-proliferation and
safeguards obligations. The following procedures are for tile purpose of
JCPOA implementation between the E3!EU+3 and h'an and are without
prejudice to the safeguards agreement and the Additional Protocol thereto. In
implementing this procedure as well as other transparency measures, the IAEA
will be requested to take every precaution to protect commercial, technological
and industrial secrets as well as other confidentia! information coming to its
knowledoe

75.

In furtherance of implementation of the JCPOA, if the IAEA has concerns
regarding undeclared nuclear materials or activities, or activities inconsistent
with the JCPOA, at locations that have not been declared under tile
comprehensive safeguards agreement or Additional Protocol, |he IAEA will
provide lran the basis for such concerns and request clarification.

76.

If Iran's explanations do not resolve the IAEA's concerns, tlle Agency may
request access to such locations for the sole reason to verify the absence of
undeclared nuclear materials and activities or activities inconsistent with tile
JCPOA at such locations. The IAEA will provide Iran the reasons for access in
writing and will make available relevant information.

77.

Iran may propose to the IAEA alternative means of resolving the 1AEA's
concerns that enable the IAEA to verify the absence of undeclared nuclear
materials and activities or activities inconsistent with the JCPOA at the
location in question, which should be given due and prompt consideration.

78.

If the absence of undeclared nuclear materials and activities or activities
inconsistent with the JCPOA cannot be verified after the implementation of the
alternative arrangements agreed by Iran and the IAEA, or if tile two sides are
unable to reach satisfactory arrangements to verify the absence of undeclared
nuclear materials and activities or activities inconsistent with tile JCPOA at the
