IBP Adult Substance Abuse Program
Iron Boy Powerlifting is dedicated to the pursuance of fair and equitable competition at all IBP sanctioned events. The IBP is adamant that no athlete should have a chemical produced advantage over another athlete nor should an athlete be compelled to use performance enhancing drugs in order to remain competitive. The IBP promotes good health and welfare for all of its members. Therefore the IBP has instituted a Substance Abuse Program.
B. Overview of the Program:
The program involves the collection of urine and laboratory analysis for substances on a list of banned-drug classes developed by the IBP. This list consists of substances generally purported to be performance enhancing and/or potentially harmful to the health and safety of the IBP athlete. This Substance Abuse Program has two organizational parts, each with a specific responsibility to the program. The first part is the IBP Substance Abuse Committee, which has overall management responsibility for the program. The IBP Substance Abuse Committee is responsible for conducting the urine sample collection and completing the sample chain of custody. The second party is the independent analysis laboratory that examines the samples taken and produces a set of findings that it reports to the IBP.

Iron Boy Powerlifting is dedicated to promoting drug free powerlifting. For this reason, beginning January 1, 2008 the IBP will recognize the USAPL “Suspended List” in addition to IBP drug testing program. All lifters suspended by the USAPL for violation of the USAPL substance abuse policy will no longer be allowed to compete in IBP sanctioned events.
