DEA Renewals

Federal Regulations governing DEA registration provide an exemption from registrations fees ($390) for any individual practitioner who is required to obtain an individual registration in order to carry out his or her duties an as official of any state agency. The practitioners at the University of Florida qualify for this exemption.

When renewing your DEA registration using Form 224A online, question #7 asks for Certification for Fee Exemption. The form also asks for the name of the “Certifying Officer”. This would be your department chair.

Please note, that this is an exemption from paying registration fees. You are still required to register and to comply with any other requirements or duties prescribed by law.
