The European Commission is embarking on a 2.5 million euro nuclear safety project with Iran. The project includes a feasibility study for the Nuclear Safety Center foreseen in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), support for the Iranian Nuclear Regulatory Authority (IRNA), help with a review of stress test results from the Bushehr nuclear power plant, and help with Iran's accession to nuclear safety conventions. A future project with Iran will include a second stress test for the Bushehr plant.
