IRAN 'Implementation Day' 16th January 2016

The EU has produced an Information Note on the lifting of certain nuclear sanctions against Iran under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action JCPOA.

The final version of the EU Information Note on the lifting of certain nuclear sanctions is available now.

The purpose of this Information Note is to provide practical information to all interested parties on the commitments contained in the JCPOA concerning the lifting of the sanctions, the measures adopted at the EU level to meet those commitments and the various practical stages in this process.

This Information Note is organised as follows:

  • Section 1 introduces the structure of the JCPOA.
  • Section 2 describes the timelines for the implementation of the sanctions-related commitments under the JCPOA (Implementation plan).
  • Section 3 presents a detailed description of the sanctions lifted under the JCPOA on Implementation Day.
  • Section 4 contains an overview of the relevant EU legislative framework.
  • Section 5 details the EU sanctions or restrictive measures that will remain in place after Implementation Day. This section also includes an outline of the procurement channel.
  • Section 6 presents EU non-nuclear related sanctions that remain in place as they are not concerned by the JCPOA.
  • Section 7 is to address practical issues with regard to the JCPOA through questions and answers. Input for this section was provided by EU Member States, business community and other interested parties.
  • Section 8 lists the main reference documents and provides relevant links.

The Q and A in Section 7 has a section for Financial, banking and insurance measures. These measures will be very relevant for Financial Institutions.

We draw your attention in particular to Q23 

Is it still necessary to file notifications and requests for authorisations relating to the transfer of funds pursuant to Articles 30, 30a of Council Regulation 267/2012 as currently applicable? Is there any limitation in relation to the amount of funds that can be transferred?
