IRAN Export Compliance Product Certification
Current post-JCPOA UN sanctions on Iran include a nuclear and ballistic missile programmes-related embargo, an arms embargo, and targeted asset freezes and travel bans.
Current post-JCPOA EU sanctions on Iran are imposed by two separate regimes.
The first continues to target nuclear proliferation even after JCPOA Implementation Day and the second targets serious human rights violations
The nuclear proliferation sanctions implement UN measures, as well as some autonomous EU measures, whilst the human rights sanctions are entirely EU autonomous measures. Both regimes impose targeted asset freezes and travel bans, and the nuclear proliferation sanctions also impose an arms embargo and nuclear-related goods and technology embargo.
According to EU Council Regulations (EC)2021/821 (Dual Use) and (EU)267/2012 (Restrictive Measures Against Iran), under the jurisdiction of EU Member States any breach of certain prohibitions therein established is a criminal offence, in particular any breach relating to: (i) export of prohibited or unlicensed goods and services; (ii) asset freezing measures; (iii) transfers of funds; (iv) dealings with any listed person (individuals, companies, other organizations); (v) additional restrictive measures.
In 2018, United States President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew US participation in the JCPOA and re-imposed all nuclear-related sanctions lifted or waived in connection with the accord. In response, the EU updated its Blocking Statute (Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2018/1100, amending Council Regulation (EC) No 2271/96) to protect European companies from the extraterritorial effects of re-imposed US sanctions.
Strict compliance policies to verify that a Product is compliant with EU Regulations and US sanctions restricting activity with IRAN must be followed.
