The USA Powerlifting rulebook has been updated and is available at Rules and Bylaws This update is significant as it is the first update to the rulebook since 2016. All updated material in the rulebook is in RED to draw attention to the new material. The updates fall into two major categories: 1. New IPF rules and 2. Clarification of existing rules or the addition of rules/policies that USA Powerlifting has already been following but have not yet been put in the rulebook. All referees, meet directors, and state chairs should familiarize themselves with the updated rules. All written state and national referee exams administered from this point forward are based on the updated rulebook.
