The last time that I purchased I2, the vendor (Sargent-Welch) required that I sign a statement verifying that I would use it in the lab and not give it or sell it to anyone else. 

Unless the regulation has changed again, the only issue is signing the statement.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] ? re Iodine Rules

Hello Everyone,


I am looking to this very knowledgeable group on interpretation of regs in 21CFR 1300 – 1321.


I just received an email from one of my colleagues in Biology.  He is concerned that there are changes to DEA iodine rules that would cause problems in his microbiology labs.  Has anyone heard such a change? 


The last notes I have regarding iodine indicate that it is not on the DHA, EPA, or OSHA 1910.1003 lists and that DEA registration does not apply to me because I am not distributing anything to anyone else.  I do see that iodine is listed as a List I chemical.  But, my understanding is that list I and list II rules would not apply to my teaching labs as I am not selling or distributing anything to anyone else.  Is this correct?


I thank you all for any input you can provide,
