Verification and Monitoring in the Islamic Republic of Iran

Mr Chairman,

You have received my report on Verification and monitoring in the Islamic Republic of Iran in light of United Nations Security Council resolution 2231 (2015).

The Agency is verifying and monitoring Iran’s implementation of all its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, in accordance with the modalities set out in the JCPOA, consistent with the Agency’s standard safeguards practices, and in an impartial and objective manner.

The Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of nuclear material declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement. Evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran remain ongoing.
