The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has launched an online database application that was developed in partnership with Atos Origin. The application is called the IPC Sport Data Management System (SDMS). The general functionality of the online application includes the following:

  • Captures athlete biographies, eligibility data (nationality, classification, etc.), results, potential records;
  • Provides U.S. Paralympics with online reports and data for its respective athletes;
  • Calculates world and regional rankings, records and other reports (e.g. classification master lists)

NOTE: Only licensed athletes will be eligible to have their results submitted for consideration on the IPC world and regional ranking lists as well as for world and regional record applications. Please note that athletes who are not licensed will not be eligible for the National Team nor will you be eligible to be classified at an IPC Event.The IPC license is valid from the time of application through the end of that calendar year.  The license will expire at the end of each calendar year and must be renewed to carry over from one year to the next.

For the current list of IPC licensed powerlifters, please check the IPC Classification Masterlist.
