This article deals with the problem of characterizing the parent distribution on the basis of the cumulative residual entropy of‎ ‎sequential order statistics under a conditional proportional hazard rates model‎. ‎It is shown that the equality of‎ ‎the cumulative residual entropy in the first sequential order statistics determines uniquely the parent distribution‎. ‎Subsequently‎, ‎we characterize the Weibull distribution on the basis of the ratio of the‎ ‎cumulative residual entropy of first sequential order statistics to the corresponding mean‎. ‎Also‎, ‎we consider characterizations based on‎ ‎the dynamic cumulative residual entropy and derive some bounds for the cumulative residual‎ ‎entropy of residual lifetime of the sequential order statistics.
