dc.description.abstract Sportspersons should ensure that the decision to use a dietary supplement is a safe one. Unlike medicines, which are regulated by the Medicines Control Council, there is no governing body to control and regulate the supplement industry in South Africa. As a result many supplements may contain banned substances and there is a chance that not all the ingredients are accurately listed on the label of a supplement product. National and international sporting bodies place the responsibility of using supplements on the sportsperson. The legal clause ‘strict liability’ means that the sportsperson is responsible for any and all substances appearing in their urine and blood.
