BSCG Banned Substance Testing Menu – March 31, 2023

The BSCG industry leading banned substance testing menu is used to test dietary supplements, food supplements, CBD products, cosmetics, homepathics, or the ingredients that participate in our Certified Drug Free, Certified Quality, and Certified CBD programs. It covers 507+ drugs including 298+ drugs on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List and 209+ illicit, prescription and over-the-counter drugs not banned in sport. We are the only group in the world to concentrate on drugs that are not banned in sport in our testing menu which improves consumer protection and regulatory security for brands.

When it comes to drugs banned in sport we have the most comprehensive protection available among third-party certification providers. The 298 WADA prohibited substances we cover are responsible for more than 96% of adverse analytical findings (positive drug tests) reported by WADA labs since 2006, the broadest coverage in the industry. See how the BSCG Certified Drug Free program stacks up in our third-party banned substance certification program comparison. The WADA Prohibited List is used as a guide for professional sport, military, and first responder drug testing programs worldwide. Our industry leading banned substance testing menu covers drugs banned by WADA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, WNBA, PGA, LPGA, MLS, CFL, ATP, WTA, FIFA, FINA, AFL, NRL, NASCAR, UFC, CrossFit, NCAA, military, first responder, and other drug-testing programs.

BSCG is proud to be the only third-party certification program to focus on expanded consumer protection by including drugs not banned in sport in the scope of testing. Drugs like PDE-5 inhibitors (viagra), muscle relaxants, pain-killers, opioids, antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and more are covered adding significant health protection for athletes and general consumers. Statistics show that around 75% of the drugs found by the U.S. FDA in tainted supplements come from drugs not banned in sport.

BSCG is also the only certification program to offer an optional expanded testing menu focused on protection of animal supplements for equines and canines, which includes screening for drugs banned by the “Association of Racing Commissioners International, Inc. Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances” or on the “Equine Prohibited Substances List” as defined by the Federation Equine International (FEI). BSCG Certified Drug Free for Animals supplements are screened for this extra list.

The BSCG testing menu below lists compounds banned in sport first followed by the illicit, prescription and over-the-counter drugs not banned in sport. Compounds banned in sport are sorted by the categories in the WADA Prohibited List then alphabetically. Compounds not banned in sport are arranged alphabetically and include the general category. Notes and Method Detection Level details are provided at the bottom.

BSCG regularly adds additional compounds that may not be listed here. BSCG reserves the right to make any additions, subtractions or adjustments to these lists that it deems appropriate for any reason at any time.

2. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Category column is used to sort compounds banned in sport according to how they are organized on the WADA Prohibited List. The WADA Prohibited List is considered by many in the anti-doping community as the most robust banned substance list in human sport and is used as a guide by most other sporting groups and leagues with some groups opting to either use the WADA Prohibited List as is, or a subset of the drugs included. The compounds included are banned by most major sporting organizations including WADA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, WNBA, PGA, LPGA, MLS, CFL, ATP, WTA, FIFA, FINA, AFL, NRL, NASCAR, UFC, CrossFit, NCAA, as well as military and first responder drug testing programs. Some organizations, such as NFL, MLB, and NCAA, may ban additional drugs not prohibited by WADA; those are included as relevant under the appropriate WADA category. Some compounds in the testing menu are not listed as prohibited substances but have resulted in adverse analytical findings or would be considered banned under related substance language included in certain compound categories.

3. In addition to compounds banned in sport prescription, over-the-counter (OTC) or illicit drugs not banned in sport are also included in the testing menu. Compounds not banned in sport are organized alphabetically.

4. BSCG has established Method Detection Levels which represent the amount, in parts per billion (ng/g), above which a compound can be identified in a representative dietary supplement matrix. Methods have been validated to ISO/IEC 17025 standards according to the fit for purpose principle of analytical chemistry with Method Detection Levels established in the2-100 ng/g range for most compounds with the remaining compounds in the 100-500 ng/g range. Detection levels in unique items may be lower or higher than Method Detection Levels for certain compounds due to matrix variation.

5. Method Detection Levels were established using extractions tailored to groups of compounds based on their chemistry. Method Detection Levels are subject to the capabilities of the extraction used for the analysis. While each extraction is capable of detecting compounds for which it was not designed, the Method Detection Levels for some compounds have not been verified. Method Detection Levels for compounds with similar chemistry to those that have been validated is expected to be in the 2-500 ng/g range, but this performance is not guaranteed.

6. An expanded testing menu may be added when certification is conducted for equine, canine, or other animal specific products or ingredients. Testing will include qualitative screening for approximately 1,300 drugs including most of the drugs banned by the “Association of Racing Commissioners International, Inc. Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances” or on the “Equine Prohibited Substances List” as defined by the Federation Equine International (FEI). These prohibited substance lists, or a subset thereof, are used internationally for competition animals and include drugs banned by the American Graded Stakes Committee, FEI, USEF, greyhound racing, camel racing and other jurisdictions. Theperformance of this qualitative screen has not been fully validated.

Reporting Levels

Compounds Banned in Sport

Any amount of a compound banned in sport that is detected and meets appropriate acceptance criteria will be reported to Company and may result in a Batch not receiving Certification. Thresholds in urine, and/or plasma, defined by international testing guidelines (WADA technical documents, ARCI uniform medication guidelines, FEI…) may be considered along with potential natural presence of a compound, and/or other relevant factors, when evaluating the significance of the findings at BSCG sole discretion.

Compounds not Banned in Sport

Contamination with compounds not banned in sport at or above a reporting threshold of .0005% and/or resulting in total daily intake based on product serving suggestions of greater than 10 ug/day may result in a Batch not receiving Certification. Presence of a compound not banned in sport detected below this level will still be reported but the Batch may receive Certification. In either instance, the company must embark on a strategy to remove the presence of the compound from its product. If such a strategy is not employed the next Batch that exhibits any amount of the compound may result in that Batch not receiving Certification. If such a strategy is employed the stated reporting levels will remain in effect as the issue is addressed.

Reporting levels are always subject to BSCG review and BSCG retains the right to make any adjustments based on circumstances surrounding each case at its sole discretion.

Master Your Dietary Supplements Like a Golf Professional

As we watch the excitement of the Masters unfold, avid golf fans might be curious about the dietary supplements golf professionals use for fuel as they duel for the green jacket. Dietary supplements don’t come without risks, and there have been many examples of athletes who have inadvertently tested positive for banned substances from contaminated supplements. A 2022 study found that “almost 28% of the studied dietary supplement...
