“USADA is fully supportive of the Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2012 and we commend Senator Whitehouse and Senator Hatch for working to create a safer marketplace for all consumers, including the athletes and young people who are often the targets of false marketing campaigns promoting these products. Experience has shown that the current laws in place regulating dietary supplements have been exploited by rogue manufacturers who produce and sell products masquerading as safe and legitimate dietary supplements when in fact they are illegal products containing steroids and other dangerous drugs. It is USADA’s duty to protect the rights of clean athletes, and on their behalf, we will provide any support we can to Senator Whitehouse and Senator Hatch for the swift passage of this important piece of legislation.”

USADA is responsible for the testing and results management process for athletes in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement, and is equally dedicated to preserving the integrity of sport through research initiatives and educational programs.
