France, Britain and Germany will reportedly inform the European Union today that they are triggering a dispute mechanism in the Iran nuclear deal following reduction of JCPOA obligations by Tehran, two European diplomats said.

According to Reuters, the diplomats said the decision was aimed at what they claimed to be a way to save the deal by discussing with Iran what it should do to reverse decisions it had made.

The aim was not to reimpose UN sanctions, the diplomats said.

Six European and Western diplomats said previously that Britain, France and Germany had agreed in principle to begin the process but they would still wait to see how significant Iran's steps were before taking a final decision, according to a report by Reuters.

The “dispute resolution mechanism,” is also known as the trigger mechanism and its activation can lead to the return of the UN sanctions against Iran.
