We are a Non profit member led organisation whose main aim is to ‘Promote Safer Commercial Diving’.
The Objectives of the Association are:
- Promote commercial diving within the context of the activities of its members;
- Establish uniform safe standards and operating practices;
- Encourage industry wide observation of such standards and operating practices;
- Encourage the enactment and enforcement of appropriate laws for the protection and regulation of the business of commercial diving;
- Do any such other things as considered by the membership or management committee of ADC to be in the interest of this industry sector;
With a membership that extends from the very smallest diving contractors working in swimming pools, rivers, lakes and harbours to those working in the outer most reaches of UK coastal waters in depths varying from less than 1m to a maximum of 50m. The sheer range and variety of activities carried out in this sector are almost as wide as some river estuaries where work takes place.
