The new IPF Approved List for 2023-2026 is now available

The current list will remain in force until 31-12-2022 and the new list will come into effect on 01-01-2023.

In order to assist with identification, we have introduced IPF ID numbers to clearly  identify each item and we will store a physical sample of each at IPF Headquarters as a reference product.  We will also link photographs of each item to the Approved List to assist with identification.  The text version is available now and we expect to have completed the full version online, with photographs available, by the end of the year.

All queries should go to the Chairman of the Technical Committee, Hannie Smith, at office(at)powerlifting.sport.
