After years of international concern about the purpose, extent and apparent furtiveness of its nuclear programme, Iran agreed to a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in July 2015.1 Iran’s main commitments under the JCPOA are designed to prevent the production of highly enriched uranium and plutonium—the two ‘pathways’ to a nuclear weapon. Together with more intrusive inspections, these measures seek to build international confidence in Iran’s intentions, to allow its nuclear programme to be ‘treated in the same manner as that of any other non-nuclear weapon state party to the [1968 Non-Proliferation Treaty]’.2 Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA has been verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in nine consecutive reports.
