Guinness World Records does not authorize those individuals who are not employed by our organization to present official certificates of record achievement.

At the current time, there is one Latin American Guinness World Records representative who is based out of Paraguay and who was not present, nor aware of the doctored record certificates distributed by ARMAP to several restaurant-owners in Peru.

While Guinness World Records does offer the possibility of licensing our trademark and logo to record holders, this option is limited to those who receive permission to do so after extensive review from our organization on any requested usage.

Any usage of the Guinness World Records logo by external organizations and companies must have the prior consent and approval from Guinness World Records.

Setting or breaking a record is free of charge, with the exception of those individuals who have are interested in having an adjudicator validate the record on site during the attempt, or those applicants who choose to expedite their record proposals.
