The EU is offering a Tool intended to assist EU economic operators, especially SME, interested in engaging in business involving Iran.  The Tool provides an easily accessible source of information on EU restrictive measures. Its objective is to give a first general and non-binding orientation to assist EU economic operators, especially EU SME, in pursuing business projects, in full awareness and compliance with EU restrictive measures against Iran.  The Tool is divided into 4 parts –

  1. The first part determines whether the Tool is applicable to a specific EU economic operator interested in engaging in business with Iran;
  2. The second part determines whether the EU economic operator is permitted to engage with the proposed business partner in Iran;
  3. The third part provides an assessment of whether the proposed activity involving Iran is compliant with EU restrictive measures; and
  4. The final section, Conclusion, presents a summary of any applicable restrictions based on the answers given.
