US Designates New Iran Centrifuge Material Supply Networks

Research output: Other contribution


Under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran’s procurement of materials that can be used in the manufacture of centrifuges is restricted. Procurements made outside of the official “Procurement Channel” would be a serious violation of the JCPOA. The US designated several Chinese entities for supplying goods to Iran, as well as a number of Iranian and Belgian intermediaries. The materials are alleged to have either been sourced directly by the Iran Centrifuge Technology Company or procured through Iranian sub-contractors, sometimes using international front companies. Company registration data suggests these transfers happened after the JCPOA and would thus mark a violation of the agreement.
