About Informed Sport

iPRO are extremely proud to be certified by Informed Sport, the global quality assurance programme for sports nutritional supplements.

“Presence of the Informed Sport quality mark on product packaging demonstrates to athletes and consumers that every batch of a product has been tested for substances prohibited in sport and that the product was made in an environment with quality systems appropriate for the stringent demands of sports nutrition manufacturing” Informed Sport, 2021.

Any nutritional supplement products that are certified by Informed Sport undergo a rigorous pre and post-certification process, consisting of four main stages;

1. Product and Manufacturing Review
2. Pre-certification sample testing
3. Product certification, logo use and web listing
4. Post-certification requirements and testing

Aspects include testing numerous product samples within Informed Sport’s screening processes, using Informed Sport’s ISO 17025 accredited testing methods, as well as blind sampling the product once it’s certified to confirm its integrity. Also, post-certification requirements include re-reviewing the manufacturing facility used to produce the product to ensure the highest standards are met across all areas at all times.

Informed Sport test over 20,000 samples per year for more than 600 companies worldwide, showing the scale of the thorough testing process for all brands who receive approval for their products.

All Informed Sport certified products are tested for 220+ substances prohibited in sport. Informed Sport certification represents the highest level of quality assurance for supplement brands as we test every batch of a product before being sold.
