When you open up your guidelines you will see a legal notice. This is very important information that must be read and understood fully before you choose to proceed with your record attempt. See an extract below.
This document acts as a guide to the specific considerations and undertakings for your potential record attempt and is to be used in conjunction with the Guide to Your Evidence, which outlines the evidence we require to verify the success of your record attempt.These guidelines should be read and understood by all concerned with the record attempt prior to the attempt – this includes every participant, organiser and witness.
These guidelines are specific to your record attempt and must be followed. Should any part of these guidelines be contravened, your record attempt will be disqualified, without any right of appeal.
Additionally, these guidelines in no way provide any kind of safety advice and cannot be construed as providing any comfort that the record attempt is free from risk.

It is your sole responsibility to ensure that (a) all necessary safety precautions are in place and that all equipment used is suitable and thoroughly checked prior to the record attempt taking place and (b) you are in compliance with all applicable health and safety laws and regulations.
If you are organising a record attempt in association with an alcoholic brand you must seek explicit written permission in advance from Guinness World Records otherwise your record may not be approved. Without written permission, your record might not be accepted even if you have followed the guidelines.
