Characterization of a probability distribution  is the investigation of those unique properties enjoyed by that distribution. In this article the general condition moments technique is used to obtain some new characterization results for the skew-normal distribution based on the order statistics as well as the record values of a random sample drawn from this distribution. The achieved results can be used to improve fitting and modeling skew data using the skew-normal distribution. Further, the new results are specialized to the standard normal distribution.
