Am I required to take the polygraph?
The polygraph testing is mandatory; all tests are by appointment and are set in order of entry receipt.
Entrants will receive a notification by email regarding their polygraph appointments 2 weeks prior the show. This test is good for 6 weeks for amateurs and 2 weeks for pros. If you are entering another INBF or WNBF event please let the show promoter know you have been tested and they will confirm this with a WNBF official.
Can I use another organizations polygraph test?
No, we require all competitors to test directly with us. Our banned substance list is more stringent than other organizations, and we have very high standards for our licensed professionals.
How can I schedule my polygraph test?
The polygraph testing is mandatory and by appointment only. Contestants will be contacted by email 2 weeks prior to competition in the order of entries received.
All testing are done at the Host Hotel the Thursday and Friday before the show.
The cost for the polygraph examination is to be paid cash at the time of your appointment.
How long does the polygraph take?
The polygraph examination itself is not a long process, usually completed on Thursday & Friday prior to a Saturday competition. The pre-screening, completing the athlete questionnaire, and multiple pre-interviews do take significantly more time. All of this information is necessary for us to gather in order to make our polygraph process more valid. You should plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to fill out paperwork. Some testers will require you to submit paperwork in advance. A valid ID, drivers license, or passport also needs to be provided to the polygraph examiner.

Open and overall winners will be urine tested. Promoters have the discretion to ask any competitor to submit a specimen for urine testing..
Banned Substances/Prescribed Medications?
