On 18 October 2015, the Parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) welcomed the Adoption Day of Agreement  related to the Iranian nuclear programme, where Iran will now start implementing all of its nuclear-related commitments.  Meanwhile, the EU adopted the legislative framework to lift all of its nuclear-related economic and financial sanctions, which will take effect only on “Implementation Day”. This implies that sanctions will not be lifted before that date. The EU legal acts can be accessed here.
