LGC has announced they have become Charter Sponsors of the Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association (CPSDA). With this partnership, LGC’s banned substance testing program, Informed Sport will reach and educate dietitians on the importance of nutritional supplement testing and the risks athletes face. This marks the first time the organisations have partnered together.
“Informed Sport is thrilled to partner with the CPSDA to help professional and collegiate sports dietitians better educate their athletes on the issue of banned substance contamination and adulteration in supplements. We look forward to sharing our extensive knowledge, expertise and experience with the CPSDA members in our effort to reduce the instances of inadvertent doping violations through supplement use,” said Paul Klinger, Informed Sport's Business Development Director.
Informed Sport will share educational materials about their programme and testing methods with the CPSDA’s 1,293 members throughout the coming year. They also attended the CPSDA’s annual conference earlier this summer in Grapevine, Texas.
Established in 2008, the Informed Sport programme has products tested and certified available in over 60 countries around the world. LGC certifies over 3,000 unique products and tests over 20,000 samples a year, with that number continuing to grow. Products that carry the Informed Sport logo have been rigorously tested for banned substances by the world-leading anti-doping laboratory LGC, using ISO 17025 accredited methods. Each and every batch of certified product is screened for banned substances down to part-per-billion levels. In addition, the product’s manufacturing process must meet strict standards of quality control through rigorous manufacturing audits.
Informed Sport is a global quality assurance programme for sports nutrition products, suppliers to the sports nutrition industry, and supplement manufacturing facilities. The programme certifies that every batch of a supplement product and/or raw material that bears the Informed Sport logo has been tested for banned substances by LGC's world-class sports anti-doping laboratory.
