There have been ongoing discussion of those ever since, and the issue appears controversial (it is not clear to me if (and where) the 'side deals' were all published. This is a rough draft, following those (unverified) claims heard today on a radio talk show, with attempted (but unfinished) googling verification:

  • (a) Iran can delay inspection by 30 days (googling gives 24 to 30, basis unclear, some references to JCPOA and 'side deals'
  • (b) and actually, it can refuse inspections altogether (there seems to be a long prescribed dance for a luminary visit to Parchin, but military sites are off/unclear

Labs use “very sophisticated analyses nuclear material using electron microscopes and mass spectrometers can be detected at the atomic level.(
