Abstract: 
After passing some instability in their political and economic relations during the past two decades Iran and the EU considered the establishment and restructuring of their Long-term relations through signing an appropriate trade agreement. The structure and scope of such an agreement were proposed by the EU under the title of TCA and the negotiation started in 2002. To date they finished eight rounds of negotiations with a sudden interruption in the mid 2005 due to the emergence of new tentions between the parties particularly in the field of Iran's nuclear policy.
The main result of this study is that the "TCA" is a non-preferential agreement and therefore the market access issues are not relevant in such an agreement.
Although the nature of "TCA" is non-preferential, from the middle of negotiations the EU asked for market access concessions for their products through the unilateral liberalization commitments for undertaking by Iran. This is a very important issue which has to be countered very firmly and appropriately by Iranian delegation. This study presents some points and guidelines and provides some recommendations in this regard. The other general commitments of "TCA" are related to observance of stand-still mechanism, most favored nation treatment, removal of all quantitative restrictions in imports and exports, tariff binding and compliance of the national rules and regulations with the WTO related rules that has been extracted in this essay as well.
