To compete in Gi you must have:
a full BJJ/Judo gi which includes a belt and it must fit right (no short sleeves or pants)
The use of a cup will not be allowed due to the risk of injury. Cups can put added pressure on joints for finishing holds.

Knee braces will be allowed however they must not have any sharp edges or metal sticking out (same with nogi)
To compete in nogi you need to have:

Basic hygiene rules:
finger and toe nails must be kept short.
