At its heart, the 2015 deal imposes restrictions on Iran's nuclear program that make it impossible for Iran to produce a bomb, in return for the lifting of most of the U.S. and international sanctions against it.The deal also limited the number of centrifuges Iran can run and restricted it to an older, slower model.The deal, however, does not directly stop Iran from testing or firing ballistic missiles.During the life of the accord, Iran is limited to a level where it cannot produce a bomb and – if the deal were to fall apart today – experts say it would need at least a year to build one. If Iran violates the deal, sanctions can immediately be reimposed.The deal's opponents argue it allows Iran to build a bomb after it expires, something Iran has explicitly promised in the accord not to do.At the same time, nothing in the deal prevents the West from trying to rein Iran in again with sanctions.Iran's nuclear program actually began with the help of the United States.Iran and world powers ultimately reached the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or the nuclear deal, in 2015 .
