BSCG is the only certification provider to include coverage against prescription, over-the-counter, and illicit drugs not banned in sport, which provides unique protection against these potentially harmful drug contaminants.

In addition to its comprehensive drug-testing protection, BSCG’s protocol includes a 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. Ongoing batch testing is required with random testing of products conducted on occasion.
BodyPlus International is a distinguished sports-supplement company with Headquarters in Sendai, Miyagi, Japan. For over 15 years, elite athletes and competitors have relied on HALEO and BulkSports supplements for their nutritional needs.
BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group) was founded in 2004 by renowned Olympic drug-testing pioneer Dr. Don Catlin and his son, executive Oliver Catlin, to address the unmet concern that banned substances in sport could be hidden in dietary supplements and to offer reputable manufacturers, suppliers and distributors a third-party certification program establishing that supplements are free of banned substance concerns.
