Stanislaw Gasienica-Makowski was tested by the IPF at the World Classic Bench Press Championships 16th May 2018 and his urine sample was found to contain Exogenous Testosterone (S1.1A Exogenous Anabolic Steroids), which is a banned substance under the WADA Code and IPF Anti-Doping Rules.. 

The IPF Doping Hearing Panel (DHP) has therefore imposed a period of ineligibility of four years on this athlete until 25th July 2022.  He is consequently suspended from membership of British Powerlifting and any related activities for the same period.

British Powerlifting is the only UK powerlifting organisation that carries out independent WADA compliant drug testing. In 2017 we conducted some 140 anti-doping tests, all at our own expense. GB lifters in World Championships are registered with the IPF for Out of Competition Testing (OCT).
