   Recently, I saw news about de-listing Joola pickleball paddles (gen 3) from the USAP Approved list due to the paddles in the Market are difference from what Joola submitted for approval (according to USAP).
   How about table tennis ? We found a lot of versions that we see the same thing. For example, some of Chinese pips those are very slippery version sold in many countries and able to use in many formal tournaments. Some chinese rubbers those are different tackiness but using common code. Any action is taken by ITTF for this matter ?

ITTF DESERVES CRITICISM A LOT.

You got it right, indeed.    ITTF little care about maintaining fair commerce by manufacturers. We can now observe a lot of the "bastard rubbers" coming out on market, mostly made in China.

With this in mind, we proposed having an ID label on every sandwich rubber intended for market.   Players are bound to use the labeled rubbers during a competition.


5. SANDWICH RUBBER. MATERIALS & MARKETING.

-- 5.2.4 Marketing a variety of sponges combined with the same topsheet is not permitted and shall be a subject to penalty
sanctions.

Or palio...any Chinese company 

when did this happen and why?  It used to be legal to glue any topsheet and sponge.

But I did have to fill out a spreadsheet of sponge colors for every rubber

I may got answer by now. I have checked rubber testing report sample. The fact seem to be " There is no requirement for surface friction of invert rubber to be checked in order tp get apprpval , no specification for it"
So, without specification then it could be considered as variation or allowance for factory to do as long as player do not modify it himself/herself.
Unlike Pimple out / long , there is minimum Cof specified in order to get approval.
