Frequently asked questions

Here you can find answers to frequently asked questions about record-breaking and World Talent Organization applications process, as well for our website and other product.

HOW TO GET TITLE APPROVED?

WTO WORLD RECORD Records has an expert Records Management Team who undertakes research and verification checks to confirm whether the new record title has been accomplished.

If you are submitting an application, it is important that you provide us with as much information as possible, including how, what and when you want to achieve the record.

If your application for a new title is accepted, or if you are applying for an existing title, you will receive your guidelines to attempt the record; it is important that you read these and provide all requested evidence. This is so our team can evaluate all evidence provided and verify whether your attempt has been successful.

For new record ideas please note that Guinness World Records only recognizes WORLD records. We do not verify national / country specific achievements.

What Record titles can I attempt?

All WTO World Records record titles must fulfill key criteria including:

Measurable – Is it the fastest / longest / heaviest / most?

Breakable – Can the record be broken or repeated by someone else? All our record titles must be open to being challenged.

Uniform – Can the record title be done universally?  For instance, it can’t be identified with something confined to an area.

Valid – Can the claim be proven? For example, a claim such as ‘the man who never blink the eyes’, can never be verified unless the man spent his whole life from birth under surveillance by a witness.

Universal – The proposal must be something, or about something that is known to the world’s majority. It cannot be too specific / regional.

If your record recommendation is like something we as of now have, we will request that you break the present record instead of supporting a variation of a similar title.

ARE THERE RULES FOR RECORD TITLE BREAK?

We evaluate every single application that we get – yet many can’t be accepted as a world record.

  • We don’t acknowledge applications dependent on subjective measures for example – beauty, kindness, loyalty.
  • We don’t accept those activities which could make potential damage or harm to any person, spectators or any creature.
  • We don’t allow individuals younger than 18 to attempt records which are considered inadmissible for minors. In these cases WTO WORLD Records works in coordination with the authority regulatory body for the specific expertise/sport.
