Commonwealth records are gathered from the best lifts from registered member nations of the CPF. The initial records are devised from the lifts achieved at the first Commonwealth Championships in 2005. However, minimum standards were set and these take place of the record where they have not been surpassed by a lifter. Commonwealth records can be set outside of the Commonwealth Championships, but must:

   - take place only at other recognized International Championships,
   - be judged by three IPF Cat 1 or Cat 2 referees
   - the event must have had WADA testing take place at the event.

The CPF Record Keeper, John Myers, must be notified of the record lift within a 14 day period following the lift event.

Commonwealth Bench Press Only Standards have recently been developed with the requirement that they be set higher than the existing Commonwealth Bench Press record in that class in a full competition.
