EWR is always against to the wastage of your time through coming up with a record that is not acceptable. For this, we suggest you to go through necessary check list when you come up with an attempt or a proposal that purely comes under a new category. Keeping this kind of situation in mind, EWR is offering few examples of records that are not acceptable by EWR in a few areas that are currently very popular.
Record Attempts for listening to music or the radio for the longest duration is not considered by EWR as this is not possible to prove that the participant is concentrating and listening to the music. There is no category to recognize the shortest song or most songs written, but it should be in broader spectrum like Most people singing. We are not considering any claims in the jam sessions or improvisations. It is highly tough to judge the musical proficiency and quality in this aspect of performances.
EWR is not considering any category for small plant or small fruit or small vegetable. Challenge is always about encouraging growing larger. Here, it is quite imperative to remember that a seed is the smallest one of this variety. We do accept some categories like Biggest brinjal grown, Biggest tomato cultivated and other kinds of similar nature.
EWR do not accept records regarding acquired qualifications. This is highly impossible to quantify qualification. Here, each country has their own academic methods for awarding a qualification and therefore standardization would be highly impossible to make a comparison. Generally, unusual, original, uniqueness and luck are highly impossible to quantify and ruled out from EWR categories for the record attempt. The EWR records categories are always open to be challenged at any time in the future. So, there should be a possibility to compare these future aspects objectively and fairly with the record. There are no categories with EWR such as ‘only’. A record is always subjected to future breakability. Also, it should be measurable and comparable too.
EWR do not endorse events that are with driving between two specific points with least amount of time limitations. As these events could result into damage or hurt for participants and spectators and involves safety and legality issues.
EWR will not entertain claims in the following areas:
Record Attempt based on the harming or killing of animals or living things.
EWR will not entertain or endorse speed record for traveling over huge distances over horse back as it concerns the welfare of the horse or any other animals involved.

EWR will not entertain separate category based on the breed and it would be an absolute record mentioning particular animal like “longest ever dog” or “oldest cat living” or “Oldest horse living”.
EWR will not entertain any endurance records such as ‘longest time living with snakes’.
EWR will not be in a position to evaluate the quality in the case of artwork, small origami or articles (unless readable through a microscope) as it becomes highly tough to judge the smallest item in the world for a particular object. Here, EWR will study the largest objects in the world for the comparison sake.
EWR do not accept any health related record attempts like individual living long live with Cancer, HIV/AIDS and diseases of such nature.
EWR do not consider or accept any Record Attempt or claim for beauty as this is not an objectively measurable item.
