No, not like SRFI-35, no condition types at all.
Instead you raise arbitrary objects (you can make
your own hierarchy if you want), and condition
types will be defined in the large language.

You seem to be confused about inheritance.
SRFI-35 and R6RS provided multiple inheritance,
while the record system supported only single
inheritance.  We will not repeat this mistake.
