BSCG Certified Drug Free® Supplement Certification Process


The BSCG Certified Drug Free® supplement certification process summarized below generally describes how we certify supplement products, raw materials / ingredients, and manufacturing facilities to be free of banned drugs. Some differences exist in the supplement certification process for banned drugs depending on whether we are certifying a finished supplement product, an ingredient, or a manufacturing facility.
