Summary of provisions of the CJPOA (Updates)

Vienna, July 14, IRNA – After 22 months of intensive talks, Iran and G5+1 on Tuesday signed the Comprehensive Joint Plan of Action to remove all misunderstandings on Iran's peaceful nuclear program and simultaneous termination of unfair economic sanctions on Iran.

The agreement has fully observed the instructions and redlines drawn up by the Islamic Republic of Iran leading to the following achievements in the field of nuclear activities and termination of all types of sanctions.
The following is a summary of the provisions of the Comprehensive Joint Plan of Action signed between Iran and G5+1 inked on Tuesday, July 14, 2015.
The CJPOA reads that:
-) World powers have recognized Iran's peaceful nuclear program and are to respect the nuclear rights of Iranian nation within international conventions.
-) Vital facts on Iran's peaceful nuclear programs had been ignored in an unfair manner to depict the program as a threat to the international peace and security but it has now turned into a theme for broadening international cooperation with other countries within international standards.
-) The Islamic Republic of Iran is to be recognized as a nuclear technology power authorized to have peaceful nuclear programs such as complete nuclear fuel cycle and enrichment to be identified by the United Nations.
-) All unfair sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council including economic and financial sanctions on Iran are to be lifted as per the agreement and through issuance of a new resolution by the United Nations Security Council.
-) All nuclear installations and sites are to continue their work contrary to the early demands of the other party, none of them will be dismantled.
-) The policy on preventing enrichment uranium is now failed and Iran will go ahead with its enrichment program.
-) Iran's nuclear infrastructure will remain intact, no centrifuges will be dismantled and research and development on key and advanced centrifuges such as IR-4, IR-5, IR-6, IR-8 will continue.
-) Arak Heavy Water Reactor will continue its work and remain intact, to be modernized, and equipped with latest technology, new laboratories and new installations and through cooperation with the owners of most sophisticated and most secure technologies in the world, early demands for dismantling or changing it to a light water reactor is void.
-) Iran to enter into the world market as the producer of nuclear-related products mainly two strategic products named 'enriched uranium and heavy water and all sanctions and restrictions imposed on imports and exports of nuclear materials which in some cases took about 35 years will be ineffective.
-) All economic, financial sanctions in banking, finance, oil, gas, petrochemical, commerce, insurance and transportations leveled by the European Union and the US under the pretext to Iran's nuclear program, will be lifted on early stages of the agreement.
-) Obligations on banning Iran's activities in missile sector such as ballistic missiles will change to limits on missiles designed for nuclear weapons that the Islamic Republic of Iran has never wanted or will never want in the future.
-) Iran's Arms embargo to be lifted or to be replaced with some restrictions in a way grounds for imports or exports of defense related items to be possible per case. These restrictions will be completely removed after five years.
-) Ban on procurement of sensitive dual-purpose items to be lifted and Iran's requirements to be facilitated and removed through referral to Iran-G5+1 Joint Commission.
-) Ban on Iranian students studying in nuclear-related fields will be fully removed.
Main components on Iran, G5+1 Comprehensive Joint Plan of Action (CJPOA)
1 Enrichment
Iran's nuclear enrichment program will be continued without one day of delay or suspension.
The Islamic Republic of Iran based on a written and precise scientific and technical plan in the first eight years of the implementing CJPOA and with acceptance of some limits not only is to stabilize its nuclear program on international perspective but is to employ all its scientific and practical pillars required for an advanced research and development program to continue industrial and commercial enrichment taking advantage of most sophisticated centrifuges in its most cost-effective forms with highest productivity.
-) After eight years of restrictions, Iran's capacity for enrichment of uranium will be developed based on the planning of nuclear energy organization for completing proliferation and running of advanced centrifuges.
-) Iran's long term nuclear program which explicitly demonstrates its goals, implementing procedures and a timetable, will be communicated to IAEA after implementation of the agreement and based on mechanism of the additional protocol.
-) Advanced IR6 centrifuges with ten times more capacity than the existing generation are to be produced gradually at the early stages of implementing agreement in a rational scientific slope in the middle stages of research and development chains after the eight year on.
-) Iran's advanced IR8 centrifuges with nominal capacity of 20 times more than current centrifuges which had been designed in the past two years, in less than a year after implementing the agreement will go into technical trial stages with gas and its research and development in the middle chains and based on most precise practical standards will go into commission in the eight year.
-) Other research and development activities on Iran's nuclear program will be continued as per the country's demands
-) Iran's enrichment capacity will be to the extent of 6,104 IR-1 centrifuges for a ten year long. Out of the figure some 5,060 centrifuge machines will carry out enrichment in Natanz and some 1,044 others in Fordow' will be on standby spot.
-) Extra centrifuges and some parts of related infrastructure devices will be collected and be replaced for outdated centrifuges for further use.
-) After implementing the agreement, Iran is to enter into international markets and play as exporter of enriched uranium regarding as strategic commodity.
-) Except some 300 kilograms of enriched uranium which will be stockpiled in the country without any time limit.
-) The extra products upon convenience of Iran and in exchange for natural uranium will be sold at international markets.
-) Or will change into fuel complex in line with international standards.
-) Or will change into natural thin uranium.
-) Fuel complexes in Iran with domestic or foreign origin bearing the international standards are not included in the 300 kilograms package.
-) Countries of G5+1 will help Iran to find access to advanced technological know-how in conformity with global standards and the country will gradually will be able to convert enriched uranium to a secured fuel for Bushehr nuclear power plant
-) Iran will maintain the level of enrichment at 3.67 for 15 years long
-) Required fuel for Tehran research reactor will be provided from Iran's 20 percent oxide reserve and in case of depletion of the source and upon commitment of the countries of G5+1, they should provide Iran with required fuel or oxide with 20 percent uranium at international markets.
-) Extra centrifuges and parts of dismantled infrastructure under supervision of IAEA and in secured and protected places in Natanz to be replaced with outdated centrifuges during agreement terms
-) Upon completion of IR6 and IR8 centrifuges which are at research and development stages at Natanz site and have the potential to remove the country's enrichment for industrial units in line with Iran's share for generation of nuclear electricity in 15-year long, Iran will not need to construct any new enrichment facilities
-) Since other methods of enrichment are not economical, the country's concentration on enrichment taking advantage of using gas centrifuges for a ten-year long will not employ other methods to this end.
