OCB Drug Testing Guidelines

Competitors cannot have used any substances listed below during the duration periods specified. All participants are required to pass polygraph screenings prior to competitions (polygraph test results from amateur OCB and other amateur natural federations' shows can be honored for amateur OCB shows held within six weeks from the contest where testing took place. Pros must be polygraph tested for every OCB Pro show, regardless of how recently they may have been tested elsewhere). For federations other than OCB, the polygraph examiner who conducted the testing must send verification to OCB, or the examiner's name and contact information must be supplied to OCB in order for results to be honored for amateur contests). In addition to polygraph testing, pro qualifying placement winners at amateur events, and cash prize placement winners in pro divisions, must pass a urine test.

Polygraph screenings are used since events are 7 years drug-free for most substances. Most anabolic steroids and other banned substances are no longer detectable in urine within a couple of months from last use, and growth hormone is not detected in routine sports panel urine testing. Note: Approximately half who don’t pass the polygraph are bikini competitors. Certain banned substances can yield an unfair advantage in getting leaner and shapelier.

Urine test lab reports showing only a testosterone/epitestosterone (T/E) ratio above 6.0 are considered positive results for presence of banned substances and result in disqualification with a 7-year suspension, unless competitors exercise the option of having isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) analyses performed on their sample at their own expense ($450), and those results show no synthetic testosterone was detected.

Any athletes with muscle implants are considered ineligible for OCB events indefinitely.
