The World Record Academy (former World Records Academy) is the World's largest organization which verify & recognize new world records, based on the UNLIMITED categories available for new records, the number of records listed in our online database and the world's largest network of adjudicators.
The World Record Academy spans the globe to find the widest selection of authentic World Records around the World. Each new world record is carefully verified by top specialists.
Launched (as worldrecordsacademy.org) in March 2007 as the world's first major competitor of Guinness World Records, WRA's project aim was to offer the first open online database of record holders and to launch a new, improved online registering system for new world records (back then, Guinness use to accept fax-only registrations).
Anyone who attempts to break or set a World Record title must follow and comply with a strict set of guidelines, which are uniquely drafted for each record attempt
The World Record Academy has become the leading international organization which certify world records, based on:
- UNLIMITED world record categories

World Record Academy is a member of Google News Network since 2007 (we have set the standards and Guinness has also become a member in January 2015, although they don't list all new records on News as we do).
