b. Only those nations fully and properly affiliated to the WDFPF may exercise voting rights.
c. Nations will cast a number of votes in the manner that applies at the Congress; i.e. in accordance with their status (3 votes for a fully affiliated national body and 1 vote for a nation registered under “single or  below minimum registration”).
d. Circumstances for postal voting will be determined by a majority decision of the WDFPF Executive Committee (Amd. 1996 AGM) and shall be subject to one of the following criteria:

  1. In cases where there is no voting quorum at the Congress.
  2. Where a decision by the World Committee is deemed essential between Congresses, in response to developments.

d. Single or below minimum representation is only available to individuals in cases where no approved WDFPF affiliated body exists in the country they wish to represent.

e. In cases where a lifter(s) represents a country in which they are NOT normally resident -and where within that country proper an approved WDFPF fully affiliated body subsequently comes into existence - the status of the national organization within the country itself will take precedence.

f.In cases where a nation is to be represented by various lifters under BOTH TYPES of Single or Below Minimum Representation, the combined ‘national? team’ will be subject to the same rules governing team composition - as for any fully affiliated WDFPF national team. In cases of dispute the WDFPF Executive will act as final arbiter.

The WDFPF Committee may delegate to any person or organization, the  actual task of verifying authenticity of said application.

5. The WDFPF as a Drug-Free Organization, relies on the mutual trust of its Member Nations. It must be the responsibility of all national governing bodies to facilitate this atmosphere of mutual trust by circulating all information relating to progress and problems with drug control and details of any political maneuvering that may be of concern to other Member Nations (Amd. 1993 AGM).

The following WDFPF qualification Totals apply ONLY to World Championships: See Appendix B.


Team points may ONLY be earned by lifters who reach or surpass the minimum qualification totals as listed above (Amd. 2004 AGM). 
In all age category competitions for the MEN, only the specified national team of 12 lifters from each nation will potentially be allowed to earn TEAM POINTS (see “2.” below). However, each nation will be allowed to enter a MAXIMUM of THREE lifters in each of the twelve WEIGHT CLASSES. 
In all age category competitions for the WOMEN, only the specified national team of 11 lifters from each nation will potentially be allowed to earn TEAM POINTS (see “2.” below). However, each nation will be allowed to enter a MAXIMUM of THREE lifters in each of the eleven WEIGHT CLASSES (Amd. 2002 AGM).

1. Each nation is allowed a maximum of two alternates or reserves. These alternates or reserves may be substituted at any time prior to the commencement of the weigh-in for a particular bodyweight class. Each nation must submit a team roster giving the name of each lifter, bodyweight class, age category and best total achieved at national or international level during the previous twelve months. The date and title of the competition in which the best total was achieved must also be stated. These details must be submitted to the responsible official prior to the commencement of the weigh-in for the lowest weight category, i.e. 52 kg for men and 44 kg for women. The names of the alternates with their bodyweight categories and best totals must also be submitted at this time.

2. Once the deadline for the acceptance of National Team Listings (the Start of the Weigh-In of the first contested weight class, NO CATEGORY CHANGES MAY BE MADE (Amd. 2004, AGM).

3. It is the philosophy of the WDFPF to include an emphasis on individual competition. As of the 1998 Congress, there shall be reference to team evaluations during WDFPF sanctioned competition, using the following team points system: 

Lifters who achieve

1st place will receive 12 team points;
2nd place receives 9 points;
3rd place receives 8 points;
4th place receives 7 points;
5th place receives 6 points;
6th place receives 5 points;
7th place receives 4 points;
8th place receives 3 points;
9th place receives 2 points;
10th place receives 1 point.

4. During World Championships team points may only be earned by lifters who reach or surpass the minimum WDFPF qualification totals. (Adm. 2004 AGM)


1. During drug testing procedures a minimum of one (1) WDFPF approved representative must be present.

2. All Member Nations must apply the principle of nil notice or very short notice Out-of-Competition Testing to athletes who are likely to participate in International competition.

3. Selection of athletes for Out-of-Competition Testing will in general be up to the National Governing Body and will be on any criteria including the basis of suspicion.

4. Target Testing:

The WDFPF through its officers reserves the right to select candidates for drug testing from member nations. Any member who suspects that a lifter in another country is abusing drugs may notify the WDFPF President who will notify the Executive Committee. If the Executive Committee believes that the complaint is valid, the Secretary General will notify the concerned national body who may be required to organize a drug test on the suspect.

5. Drug testing will be mandatory at all International Championships. Where possible a minimum of 20% of competitors will be sampled - with a minimum of 10% of competitors actually being tested (Amd. 1990 AGM). The cost of the minimum amount of testing required is to be borne by the host nation with the cost of additional tests felt necessary to be borne by the WDFPF.

6. It must be possible for WDFPF Officials and/or other WDFPF accepted drug control agencies, to “Target Test” where it is believed necessary, any lifter at WDFPF sanctioned events and any National Championships where records are to be claimed. An element of random selection may be applied if believed necessary. When the targeting of lifters is done, the selection may be based on any or all of the following criteria: caliber of performance; performance improvement; behavior; appearance; rumor or hearsay. For this reason the WDFPF requires every member National body to apply membership affiliation procedures which include competitor’s signatures of assent to and support for, all WDFPF rules on doping control.

7. Testing of samples from International Championships will normally be done at laboratories accredited by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). If a situation arises whereby a country or countries cannot obtain the services of an accredited IOC Laboratory, other laboratories may be accepted subject to agreement by a majority of the other Member Nations (Amd. 1990 AGM).

8.  The Drug-Free period, from 1991 onwards, will be five(5)years. All WDFPF affiliated national federations must annually progress towards a five (5) year “drug-free” period (Amd. 1997 Postal Ballot).

9. Banned Substances: The WDFPF will use the IOC List of Banned Substances as a guideline but reserves the right to add to this list any drug which it may believe to be performance enhancing. Similarly, the WDFPF reserves the right to delete from this list, any substance it may believe to be irrelevant to powerlifting performance (Amd. 1988 AGM).

10. Member nations may elect to use a reduced list of banned substances (i.e. anabolic drugs only) for purposes of testing lifters Out-of-Competition (Amd. 1996 AGM).

11. Drug testing methods will be left to individual member nations for their own internal affairs. (This is to provide for polygraph use and other testing methods by certain nations, in addition to the mandatory urinalysis required under WDFPF rules.)

12. Each Member Nation must provide evidence of regular Out-of-Competition Testing (OCT). The Chain of Custody documentation with laboratory results of individual Out-of-Competition Tests must be mailed to the Secretary General as and when received (1993 AGM). The results will be recorded and passed on to all national liaison officers. In addition, each member nation must present annually to the AGM the copies of the Chain of Custody documentation with the laboratory reports of all lifters tested by this method since the previous World Congress. Any nation not complying with this rule will immediately be suspended from WDFPF involvement until compliance (Amd. 1991 AGM).

13. Sanctions: Positive drug test results, or refusal of testing in WDFPF Sanctioned or Nationally Sanctioned competition, or refusal of Out-of-Competition Testing, will result in a lifetime ban from further WDFPF Competition as well as retrospective loss of all WDFPF titles and records. The lifetime ban refers to the natural life of the subject.

14. It is mandatory for all WDFPF affiliated national federations to apply a policy of automatic life-time bans in cases of positive drug test results (anabolic steroids) or refusals, subject to confirmation (Amd. 1997 Postal Ballot).

15. The WDFPF regards Beta Blockers as acceptable medication. Positive Ephedrine results will not necessarily be regarded as drug abuse carrying an automatic lifetime ban. Any level of Ephedrine indicated by a drug test will cause a loss of title and record(s) set (Amd. 2002 AGM). The World Committee will decide the penalty subject to the following criteria:

a. Up to 10 ppm will result in a warning.
b. Over 10 ppm will result in a two year ban (and the removal of any title, placing and records set, if the result of an In-Competition Test).
c. A second positive Ephedrine test will result in a lifetime ban from all WDFPF involvement.

16. Anyone convicted of the sale, use, or smuggling of ergogenic drugs by a court of law, or who has been found to be positive on a drug test, may be considered ineligible for WDFPF Competition.

17. Under exceptional circumstances, a positive test for any substance on the IOC Banned List, may not be regarded as drug abuse, subject to the World Committee’s decision.

18. Drug Failure details including the number of drug tests conducted within the WDFPF Championships specifying name, drug(s), and ban time of test failures be published on the WDFPF web site and be listed on the WDFPF Suspension List which will be sent to Meet Directors (Amd. 2000 AGM).

19. When athletes in National and/or International Federations fail drug tests conforming to the WDFPF Drug Control constraints, those athletes will be listed on the WDFPF Suspension List (Amd. 2000 AGM).

20. Lifters who have failed drug tests from 1990 onwards into the future in National and International Federations will be listed on the WDFPF Suspension List (Amd. 2000 AGM).


1. A Drug Control Committee must be appointed or elected from volunteers. Membership must represent a minimum of three (3) different nations.

2. The duties of the Drug Control Committee are to include:

Setting a procedure for positive drug test results that each member nation will be required to follow.

  • Establish a suggested time period for Out-of-Competition drug testing (Out-of-Competition drug testing should take place four (4 ) to six (6) weeks prior to a national or WDFPF World Championships).
  • Reviewing sanction options for positive drug tests including stimulants (Amd. 1996, AGM).

3. The WDFPF Executive may appoint accredited drug Control Officials or agencies to act in the interest of the WDFPF in any nation of the world in matters of drug control and testing of lifters (Amd. 1996, AGM).
