An official EWR judge is called as record Adjudicator and this adjudicator will verify the record personally and certifies the success according to guidelines. However, it is not mandatory to have adjudicator for every Record Attempt event. Actually, a record under the presence of an official EWR adjudicator will always have huge chances to increase the profile of the record attempt event. A record attempt through an official adjudicator automatically gains attention from media and immediate announcement through this adjudicator will result in a huge popularity for the achiever.

EWR adjudicators attending to a record attempt happens quite often, which will ensure strict adherence with the guidelines. These adjudicators are professionals and well trained to face media interviews. This adjudicator will be available at the record attempt event prior to the schedule time keeps in touch with media such as TV, news papers, radio etc. Every successful record attempt will be facilitated with certification by this adjudicator immediately. Every Record Attempt success is precious and it would be more worth if done instantly through the official adjudicator. It can gain attention from the media and offers huge popularity to the achieved success.

Presence of the EWR official adjudicator will also include a review press release too. EWR’s internal press office will schedule and arrange all the needed press releases through communicating with media and distributes the same too. Distribution of photographs and information about setting a record or breaking record to media will be carried out professionally from our head office. Importantly, presence of the adjudicator will result as a great help in clarifying the doubts in guidelines quickly in friendly manner. Also, a record attempt organized through a Records manager from our head office will be solely dedicated to the event.

This kind of service is very much limited from EWR and this will result into some expenditure for the participant. This expenditure would be for attendance fee, travel cost, and some others. Further clarifications and guidance about hiring an official adjudicator can be pursued through calling personally to our number 00914222344111.

Among all the participants, few will be successful and successful candidates will be offered place in our database of records. Here, our book only can accommodate 5,000 records per year. Editorial decision will be final in this aspect and we will accommodate as many records as possible to enter in to the book while publishing every year. Editorial team will add up some of the valuable and important records into the book according to the set standards and regulations. Here, the record of yours, which is not included in this year publication will have a chance to take place in future editions basing on the readers interest and editorial guidelines. However, this record may also appear in the website.

EWR is currently receiving more than 10,000 record claims per year. It is highly tough to accept these many claims that were sent to us. Some of the received claim suggestions are highly dangerous to accept by EWR. We always take a back step from the claims that are having chances for the risk over participants, spectators and members. We always keep ourselves away from the claims that are not reasonable for the challenge or too much centric towards any particular individual and impossible to break the record. Also, we are not encouraging any national or parochial or country specific records keeping in mind the space constraints and restricted resources availability. We are recognizing or publishing such claims. This is the main reason to call us Elite World Records and not the Elite Book of Records.It is not the idea of EWR to underestimate these capacities or capabilities, but it is just an effort to keep all the records are possible to break once again with a solid proof and skills.
