Record title assessment and criteria

Established to recognize and celebrate unique achievements throughout the country, The Brunei Book of Records aims to inspire people of all ages to go beyond their limits. We set ourselves some high standards and set up policies to determine what is considered a Brunei Book of Records Title to achieve and maintain these high standards.


Here are some of the factors that must be considered when assessing the validity of the title.


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

Record titles must be able to be measured objectively. Applications with subjective measurements like funniest, meanest or most extroverted are not accepted. Is the record based on one superlative and measured in one unit of measurement?

Record titles must have conditions and parameters that can be repeated to allow for future challenges to that title.

There must be sufficient and accurate evidence to prove that the record title occurrence did indeed happen.

What constitutes a record and who are able to participate

A record can be any feat, skill or achievement. Record setters can be individuals, groups, organization, and even your pets can be recognized!

Prohibited record attempts

We assess all record titles against our values of integrity, respect, inclusiveness and passion. As such, we have a number of internal policies that all records must abide by. As such, we do not endorse record attempts that include any of the following:


  • Unsuitable activities or those which could cause potential harm or danger to participants, spectators and animals.
  • Excessive eating. All our eating records are limited to short time periods and small quantities of food. For example: The fastest time to eat three curry puffs.
  • Food wastage.
  • Consumption of alcohol.
  • Illegal activities.
  • People under the age of 18 attempting to hold records considered unsuitable for minors.
