/// What is the Bodybuilding.com Quality Checked Program?
The Bodybuilding.com Quality Checked Program highlights companies that have subjected their products to three strict levels of excellence and quality testing. Once a supplement company has fulfilled these objectives, they receive the Bodybuilding.com Quality Checked Seal of approval to be displayed on the product's page. Companies who have this certification ensure the quality and effectiveness of their products in three specific ways:
- Manufacturers are first required to provide proof that their facilities are Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant. To do so, their facilities must undergo a rigorous inspection process that is performed by a third party such as the Natural Products Association.
- They are then required to show proof that the specific product applying for the seal was tested for quality and provide a Certificate of Analysis once the test is complete.
- Finally, the product under consideration must have a cumulative rating of 6 or higher on the 10 point customer satisfaction scale and must have at least 30 consumer ratings to satisfy the requirement.
Once all three requirements are met, the product is awarded the Bodybuilding.com Quality Checked Seal.
