International Powerlifting Organization
The American Powerlifting Committee (http://www.americanpowerliftingcommittee-usa.com) was incorporated in 2003. The APC promotes equipped and raw powerlifting, Bench Press only, Push Pull, and Deadlift only competitions.
The APC supports two unique international powerlifting federations:
The Global Powerlifting Alliance (http://www.globalpowerliftingalliance.com) was formed in 2009 to fulfill the need for a World Organization devoted only to Raw Powerlifting. It was the first to do so. The fourth GPA World Powerlifting Championships were held in Tampere, Finland December 5 – 8, 2013.
The International Powerlifting Organization (http://www.internationalpowerliftingorganization.com) was formed in 2012 to provide a format for equipped only lifters. The first IPO World Powerlifting Championships were held in Athens, Ga., USA October 18 – 20, 2013.
The APC, GPA, and IPO are all similar in rules, lifter classifications, and judging. The partnership of the three federations has standardized powerlifting to provide a format for all lifters, raw and equipped, with fairness to all worldwide.
We invite you to join us and further unite the world’s greatest sport POWERLIFTING.

Australia are preparing for the 5th, and what looks to be the largest,
GPA World Championships to date. We will all give him our support and
encouragement as he prepares for this great event. The GPA is still
young and the growth is fantastic. As we grow, new situations arise.
Each year at the AGM is the time we meet and discuss changes and the
need for new rules. Each GPA member country has a vote at the AGM.
We have established a page for items to be discussed at the 2014 AGM
