The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has issued an overview on Iran’s Ballistic Missile and Space Launch Programs

As noted by the CRS report, Iran has been acquiring, developing, and testing its ballistic missile capabilities for decades. The United Nations Security Council in 2015 adopted resolution 2231, calling on, but not requiring, Iran to not develop nuclear-capable ballistic missiles and to halt other ballistic missile activity.

Nevertheless, Iran continues to invest in developing ballistic missiles and in building an extensive network of facilities, although missile inventory information is scarce.
