NSF International is an independent, not-for-profit organization that meets the growing demands of athletes, coaches and all those concerned about banned substances in sports supplements. NSF International created the new NSF Certified for Sport™ Program. This new NSF program is a focused solution designed to minimize the risk that a dietary supplement or sports nutrition product contains banned substances. This program is part of NSF's successful 60-year history of providing certification programs for food, water and consumer goods.
MLB, the MLB Player’s Association, NFL, the NFL Player’s Association, PGA, LPGA and the CCES have all chosen NSF’s Certified for Sport™ program to help verify the products their athletes use are safer and free of banned substances. NSF GMP for Sport™ certification verifies that the facility, operations and ingredient sourcing are in compliance with GMP requirements via ongoing audits.
