IPF rule update

Posted By: Eliot Feldman

I sent an email to IPF EC members and it was forwarded to Detlev Albrings. It seems that lifters will still be able to lift in national meets if suspended from international and regional competetions. The updated rule suggests that a lifter would not be allowed to compete in IPF and NAPF meets, but would be free to compete in USAPL meets. Here is the response from the IPF:

Dear All,

Attached you will find the updated minutes of the IPF-Congress 2005.
We have discovered that on page 28 in 14.9 the word "international" was
missing:

Here is the right version:

14.9 Participating in Non-IPF Competition
Any lifter, coach, referee or official who competes or participates in an
international Powerlifting or Bench Press competition not organised,
sanctioned or approved by the IPF shall not be permitted to take part in any
IPF international or regional competition for a period of 12 months from the
date of that non-approved competition.

Please excuse this mistake.

Regards and I wish you all the best for the future
Detlev
