Gear Approval Application


Thank you for your interest in the USPA Gear Approval process.

Interested manufacturers, not currently on the list, will not be considered for approval until the review period starts on August 1 and ends on November 15 each year. No gear inspections will be conducted after the November 15th deadline. No exceptions!

Manufacturers must submit samples with a $100.00 non-refundable administrative fee to the USPA National Office during the review period to make sure their equipment complies with required specifications. If the submitted samples do not comply, the manufacturer will be notified of the specific deficiency, so they can take corrective action, within the inspection period, if they choose. If the samples pass inspection, the items will be added to the Approved Equipment List for the following year. Any vendor that sends equipment to the USPA for inspection must pay all return shipping costs within 30 days if they want the item(s) returned; otherwise the items will be donated to the USPA Powerlifting Foundation to support lifters in need.

All manufacturers who would like to remain on the Approved Equipment List for future editions of the USPA Rulebook will be subject to an annual fee of $500 for the 1st item category and $250 for each additional category, payable no later than December 1st of the year preceding publication.
