 Tested To The Gold Standard

BSCG Certified Drug Free® represents the gold standard in third-party dietary supplement certification offering perhaps the most robust supplement protection program available today. The program ensures that hidden drugs are not present in dietary supplements and that certain quality standards and processes are in place. BSCG’s foundation is rooted in 30+ years of experience as a leader in Olympic and professional sport drug testing.

The BSCG Certified Drug Free® standard testing menu covers 500+ drugs, more than any other program available. This includes 287+ drugs on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List and an additional 204+ illicit, prescription, and over-the-counter drugs not banned in sport. BSCG Certified Drug Free® is the only certification program to go beyond drugs banned in sport and test for others that have proven to be a concern in supplements. Drugs like PDE-5 inhibitors (Viagra), muscle relaxants, pain killers, antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and more. This adds significant protection for athletes and general consumers. Ongoing testing is required with either every batch tested or monthly testing. Random testing is conducted on occasion. BSCG detection levels are among the lowest available with capabilities in the low part per billion range, which is essential when it comes to athlete protection.

BSCG’s sport drug-testing menu is focused on the WADA Prohibited List. The WADA list governs Olympic sport and is used by all National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs) including ASADA, UKAD and USADA. It also serves as a model for sport federations, professional sport leagues and military/vocational drug-testing programs, which ban many of the compounds on the WADA Prohibited List. As a result, the BSCG program offers drug-testing security to athletes and professionals across the spectrum of WADA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, WNBA, PGA, LPGA, MLS, ATP, WTF, FIFA, FINA, AFL, NRL, NASCAR, CrossFit, military, law enforcement, and other drug-testing programs.

The comprehensive drug-testing protection BSCG Certified Drug Free® supplement certification provides is only one key element of the program. BSCG’s protocol includes a 21 CFR 111 Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) quality control process review, raw material ingredient and supplier review, and a general toxicology assessment. Testing is conducted in International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17025 accredited laboratories using methods that have been validated for nutritional supplement analysis and are included in the ISO 17025 Scope of Accreditation.

The BSCG Certified Drug Free® program provides athletes and consumers with the best protection available against possible drug contamination.
