“Occupational diving is universally recognized as being a high hazard, high-risk activity. As such, it is regulated in every developed country in the world”.
All around the world, such proof relies on being able to produce a credible certificate of competency awarded by one of the handful of reputable certification agencies.
ADAS is a foundation member of the International Diving Regulators & Certification Forum (IDRCF) Comprising of all the mainstream international certification schemes and has formal mutual recognition arrangements with those and other countries and with appropriate industry peak bodies. These agreements ensure that the ADAS license to dive is recognized as equivalent to the IDRCF-member diving qualifications or to those that form the basis for the industry-based certification arrangements.
These agreements ensure that ADAS divers can operate in that country’s jurisdiction with their ADAS certificate or by crossover to the national certification.
