The following statement was posted today on the IPF website

Dear all,

Due to the fact that the company APT-Pro Wrist Straps did not fulfill their obligations to the IPF, all equipment from the company APT-Pro Wrist Straps will be removed from the IPF approval list with the date December 31, 2011.

With the date of 01.01.2012 the equipment from the company APT-Pro Wrist Straps will be no longer allowed for use at IPF championships or championships of IPF affiliated member federations.

If you have any complaints, please contact the company APT-Pro Wrist Straps directly: 

International Powerlifting Federation”

Hello Everyone:
Just another reminder to everyone, the equipment will no longer be allowed to be used.  So, it will be important that we get the word out to the lifters as soon as possible.

As a reminder, at our local and state competitions, it is important that we remain both flexible and reasonable when performing equipment check on (non-supportive) equipment. PLEASE, have your referees, use their best judgment when it comes necessary to disallow a piece of gear.

Questions, please contact me directly.

Thank you,
Robert Keller
Chairman, Technical Committee
