At the 2016 National Governing Board (NGB) meeting on May 19 in Aurora, CO, it was voted to no longer allow American records to be set at local meets. This new rule states that American records can only be set at meets designated as state powerlifting championships. American records can still be set at regional, national, and international meets. This new policy went into effect September 1, 2016.
