DNAfit’s mission

DNAfit’s mission

Our mission is to use genetic science and technology to help millions of people live longer, healthier and happier lives.

Our earliest heritage was in sports, helping elite athletes achieve their full potential. However, in just a few years, we found that genetics play a much bigger role than simply boosting performance.

Now, we’re tackling the effects of preventable diseases–before they creep into families’ lives. We help people understand more about their bodies and make simple lifestyle changes to improve health and well-being.

The DNAfit Personal Genetics Code of Practice

No direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing for under-18s...

Genetic tests should not be provided direct to consumers under the age of 18.

No testing for talent identification or predicting sporting ability...

DTC personal genetic testing should never be used as a predictive measure, nor as a means to identify which sport a customer should attempt or indeed even to influence the customer’s choice of fitness level or sporting goal. There exists no ethical or scientific basis upon which to support the use of genetic information in this way, and this should be clearly communicated to the customer.

Provide detailed information about gene variants...

All providers of DTC genetic testing should provide clear information to prospective customers about every gene variant included in the test.

Provide a minimum evidence base for all reported gene variants...

Variants should only be reported in a consumer test if there is a reasonable level of scientific consensus, based on human studies, showing their relevance to the test. The variants that are reported in a consumer test should be those that influence lifestyle changes from which health benefits may be derived.

No misleading claims...

DTC genetics companies should clearly state the limitations of fitness and nutrition genetics and make no exaggerated or misleading claims about the potential benefits of their product.

State clearly that genetics are only one element in a fitness or nutrition regime...

Recommended fitness or nutrition regimes must not be built solely on genetic results. Environmental factors play a more important role than genetics.

Demonstrate strict laboratory & data protection standards...

DTC genetics companies should disclose the location of the laboratory used to analyse samples to enable a customer to make an informed decision about the security of their DNA sample and the quality of the laboratory analysis.

Ensure expert advice is available to explain results to customers...

DTC genetics companies should have experts in their particular field available to explain results to customers.

Be commercially transparent...

If DTC genetics companies recommend or promote any additional products or services to their customers, such as nutritional supplements, they should clearly state if they have commercial relationships with third party suppliers.

Customer consent should be mandatory before testing...

Customers should be required to provide their formal consent to genetic testing and sign a declaration confirming their understanding of how their data will be used.
