Yep, Page 15 of the IPF Rulebook, under Personal Equipment:

7. Two layers of medical tape may be worn around the thumbs. Medical tape or its like may not be worn anywhere else on the body without official permission of the Jury, or Chief Referee. Medical tape may not be used as aids to the lifter in holding the bar.
