What does IPF Approved Mean?
The IPF (International Powerlifting Federation) only allows equipment to be worn in IPF sanctioned competitions that has been officially approved by an IPF Technical Committee.
For a manufacturer to have their gear officially approved by the IPF they must send the IPF Technical Committee their gear to be inspected. Once the gear is inspected, as long as it meets all specifications in the IPF rulebook, the IPF will officially approve the gear.
The IPF then requires each manufacturer to pay a license fee for each piece of equipment that they wish to have approved and listed in the IPF approved list each year.
Once a manufacturers gear is approved, contracts are signed, and license fees are paid the manufacturer can call themselves IPF approved.
When do I need IPF Approved Equipment?
IPF approved equipment must be worn in all IPF sanctioned competitions.
For the majority of countries, this will apply to all IPF affiliated federations.
USAPL local and state level meets generally do not require IPF approved equipment.
It is always best to check with the Federation President or the meet director for the competition you want to compete in to see if they require IPF approved equipment.
What if I don’t have IPF Approved Equipment?
You don’t need IPF approved equipment to compete in powerlifting. There are several other federations that are not affiliated with the IPF and do not require equipment to be approved by their Technical Committee.
One exception is the USPA/IPL. This federation does require equipment approval by their Technical Committee, and yes, Stoic gear is approved for USPA/IPL also.
Stoic features some of the strongest athletes around, and we're proud to share their progress!
