CPU Approved Equipment List

The CPU Approved Equipment List aims to increase the scope of equipment permitted at all levels of CPU competitions. Adopting this list will help ease restrictions put on meet directors by allowing other options of equipment to be used that may not be on the IPF Approved List of Equipment (“IPF List”).

In addition to the IPF-approved bars, discs, and collars, only equipment listed on the CPU Approved Equipment List shall be used at all levels of powerlifting competitions in the CPU, including provincial, regional, and national level competitions. All equipment listed will be subject to regular inspection by CPU Officials at CPU Competitions.

If you are a dealer or manufacturer of powerlifting combo racks, calibrated discs, and/or competition collars and would like to have your equipment inspected for use at all CPU-level events, please contact:
