You can read the DEA Rule change and comments and exceptions here:
Although you are not distributing products, the DEA requires purchasing agencies to submit identification documents in order to purchase iodine. An exception was made for Lugol’s solution in
bottles 1 oz. or smaller. Other exceptions were made due to comments submitted.
We purchase several hundred grams of Iodine each year, and provide the DEA with proper identification for the license. We are looking at cutting back on our purchases however due to the increase
in cost of Iodine and Potassium Iodide.
We are looking for new labs to replace those that use a large amount of these materials.

Subject: [NAOSMM] ? re Iodine Rules
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,
