Provision of Certain Temporary and Limited Sanctions Relief in Order To Implement the Joint Plan of Action of November 24, 2013 Between the P5+1 and the Islamic Republic of Iran, as Extended Through November 24, 2014
On November 24, 2013, the United States and its partners in the P5+1 (France, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, and Germany) and the EU reached an initial understanding with Iran, outlined in a Joint Plan of Action (JPOA), that halts progress on its nuclear program and rolls it back in key respects. In return, the P5+1 committed to provide limited, temporary, and targeted sanctions relief to Iran. The JPOA was scheduled to expire after July 20, 2014. The JPOA was renewed by mutual consent of the P5+1, EU, and Iran on July 19, 2014, extending the temporary sanctions relief provided under the JPOA through November 24, 2014 (the Extended JPOA Period), in order to continue to negotiate a long-term comprehensive solution to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and to ensure that Iran's nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful. This Notice outlines the U.S. government actions taken to implement the sanctions relief aspects of this understanding.
