Informed Sport is a certification programme for sports supplements which assures athletes that products carrying the Informed Sport mark have been regularly tested for substances considered prohibited in sport. In addition, Informed Sport also ensures that products have been manufactured to high quality standards. Responsible supplement companies have made Informed Sport part of their existing quality assurance systems to ensure their products are safer for athletes to use.
Research has shown that ongoing testing has proven to be a far more effective way to prevent inter-batch contamination occurring. Informed Sport is the only programme that requires ongoing testing to assist in providing athletes with continual confidence in the products that carry the Informed Sport logo.
Athletes who see the Informed Sport logo on a product can be assured it has undergone rigorous checks and testing to ensure that the product has been tested for banned substances and is safer for use.
