KEY STIPULATIONS OF THE JCPOA

During the 15-year period, Iran will only enrich uranium to up to 3.67% (substantially below the 90%
threshold required for the production of a nuclear bomb) and it will reduce its stockpile of low-enriched
uranium from 10 000 kg today to a maximum 300 kg for 15 years. Iran’s research and development and
testing capacities for enrichment will also be limited. Enrichment will be further restricted to a single
site, where only Iran’s oldest, least ecient centrifuges will be operating for a duration of 10 years. In
addition, Iran agreed that it will not seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons.
