EU sanctions against Iran are not intended to affect humanitarian goods, and explicitly exclude medical equipment. Furthermore, the Joint Plan of Action includes provisions to make transactions with Iran for humanitarian purposes much easier. Provided no designated entities are involved, the UK issues, as a priority, licenses for transactions for humanitarian goods.
