On 25 October 2017, the House of Commons published a briefing paper regarding the Iran nuclear deal (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action). In particular, the paper focuses on President Trump’s recent refusal to certify Iran’s compliance with its obligations under the deal. This does not in itself end the deal but does give the US a 60-day window in which to re-introduce suspended sanctions against Iran using an expedited procedure.

The House of Commons briefing paper can be found here and Baker McKenzie’s previous blog post on President Trump’s refusal to certify Iran’s compliance can be found here.

Baker McKenzie will also be hosting a webinar on Iran sanctions developments on Monday 6 November; registration available here.
