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.

To Apply for a CPF record, please use this form: CPF Record Application Form.
