NSF AthleticBanned Substances Certification Program
Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega™Sport is the first omega-3 fish oil worldwide to be included in the NSF Certified for Sport Program, also known as the Athletic Banned Substances Certification Program, which provides certified products with an approval symbol on the packaging. The Certification Program's rigorous testing and certification process ensures that Ultimate Omega Sport fully complies with current NSF standards, and that athletes can enjoy Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega Sport fish oil without unknowingly consuming banned or prohibited substances or their metabolites.
The certification program also verifies that Ultimate Omega Sport contains only the actual quantity of ingredients listed on the label. Certified products must meet the following criteria:
• Formula Evaluation - NSF provides confidential review of CertifiedProduct formulations to screen for Prohibited Substances.
• Good Manufacturing Practices - Production facilities and packaging facilities, for Certified Products, are inspected to insure controls are in place to avoid the introduction of, or cross contamination with Prohibited Substances.
• Clinical Testing for Metabolites - At the client's request, NSF will oversee clinical testing to determine if any ingredients metabolize into Prohibited Substances.
• Chain-of-Custody Procedures - Each Certified Product lot tested for Prohibited Substances must be collected by an NSF auditor.
• All Certified Products pending testing are held by the manufacturer under locked quarantine until NSF notifies the manufacturer of successful test results.
