Every year British Weight lifting's competition team review the national qualification totals to ensure that English events align with developments within the sport domestically.
To achieve a qualification total for a Tier 1 (British) or Tier 2 (English) competition, the total must have been achieved in the same bodyweight category that the lifter first submits an entry for.
For example: A total achieved in the Women's 71kg bodyweight category can only be used to qualify for the Women's 71kg bodyweight category. Changes to bodyweight categories can be made after entering an event.
More information can be found on section 6.1 of the BWL Technical and Competition Rules and Regulations

- Any Tier 1 (British), 2 (English) or 3 (Club) competition run in accordance with BWL regulations
