BPU Records

medalbannerAh, you found us!!

Welcome to the BPU records section. As you know we are the only British licensed federation to the World Powerlifting Congress.

Here you will find links to our own British records and also the WPC European and WPC World records.

You can attempt British records at any of our regional or national competitions and for European and World records it needs to be an intentionally recognised competition like a World Championship or Europeans or a WPC sanctioned event.

Rule of thumb is always check if the competition is WPC sanctioned before going for a European or World record - there have been times in the past that lifters have been told by other federations they have broken World Records when in fact it was never a sanctioned competition.

Remember - for World records, ALWAYS fill out your WPC World record form which needs the 3 signatures of the referees on platform at the time of your lift. You need to get this done the same day and handed in.

World record certificates have ALWAYS been free to claim from the WPC and you should never be asked for money for them. The WPC will send out your certificate direct from them free of charge.

Records are fiddly - mistakes can happen so for anything which needs amended please email records@britishpowerliftingunion.co.uk




ALL inquiries regarding records MUST be emailed to records@britishpowerliftingunion.co.uk - please DO NOT contact him personally through facebook etc. 

Please allow 4 weeks when asking NICELY for a certificate, certificates generally will go out on the 1st of each month, but certainly within 4 weeks. 

You will get a virtual copy in PDF of your certificate. IF you prefer just to have the PDF and print it yourself PLEASE MAKE THIS CLEAR!!

Please remember that RAW is without knee wraps or sleeves - and CLASSIC RAW is WITH knee wraps or sleeves. 

Record claiming form - all record certificate requests must be requested through this form.
