Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act Becomes Law
Client Memorandum

Created date


On May 22, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 (INARA). INARA establishes a mechanism for Congressional review of any new agreement reached between the United States and Iran related to Iran's nuclear program. As described in the following memorandum, INARA limits the President's ability to grant Iran relief from sanctions imposed by statute, allots Congress a period during which to review a new nuclear agreement, imposes certain reporting and certification requirements on the executive branch, and provides for expedited Congressional consideration of bills reinstating sanctions in the event of a finding of Iranian noncompliance with a nuclear agreement.
