It is the lifter's responsibility to obtain and submit the correct or current USPF &/or SWP Record Applications to the respective Records Chairs. The lifter is required to tell the scorekeeper and Head Referee before his/her lift if they are attempting an American &/or SWP Record. Immediately after they have achieved such lift, the lifter is required to have their gear checked by the Head Referee before leaving the platform.
Due to the increase in costs, paper Certificates mailed via USPS are now $5 per Records Application. Certifying and recording records are still free along with PDF certificates emailed to you that you can download and print.
