What is BSCG and its Certified Drug Free® program?November 21, 2014
Banned Substances Control Group or BSCG is an independent, third-party company specializing in certification of dietary supplements, natural products, functional foods, homeopathics, medical devices and more. The BSCG Certified Drug Free® program is a certification system that utilizes the most up-to-date scientific analysis and testing procedures to ensure that products are free of drugs or other contaminants that can be harmful or lead to positive drug tests. We also evaluate the general quality of products and check their label claims in our Certified Quality program and audit facilities for GMP compliance under our Certified GMP program. Created out of a need to protect human athletes, BSCG has broadened its focus to include protection of equines and canines as well as consumers at large. We have done this by addressing drugs outside the realm of sport that are a concern in the industry and are pleased to be the only supplement certification provider to offer this additional protection.
