Annex 3

Annex 3 of the IAEA’s Ongoing Monitoring and Verification (OMV) Plan sets out a list of nuclear and nuclear-related items which are either prohibited to Iraq or are subject to certain controls (including reporting to the IAEA by Iraq and reporting by any State exporting such items to Iraq).

Items prohibited under Annex3

Annex 3 lists nuclear material, equipment and technology and nuclear-related materials, equipment, software and related technology, which are subject to the OMV Plan as well to the Export/Import Mechanism developed at the Security Council's request. The Annex is designed to assist all organizations, agencies and personnel responsible for ensuring compliance with the OMV and/or the Export/Import Mechanism. These include exporters, customs and other officials in exporting States and in Iraq, personnel in the Joint Unit responsible for the Export/Import Mechanism, and staff of the IAEA and United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) at Headquarters and in the field.

In addition to certain nuclear materials, the items listed in Annex 3 include those considered to be “especially designed or prepared for the processing, use or production of special fissionable material” (i.e., items for use exclusively in nuclear activities, whether military or civilian). Such items are, for ease of reference, termed, "single-use". Furthermore, Annex 3 lists items considered to be “dual-use” items (i.e., items that may have non-nuclear applications as well as nuclear applications).
