Medical examination of divers: Central & North America initiative

Information note IMCA D 20/01, issued in July 2001, advised members of the requirements for doctors who undertake annual medical examination of divers, in light of the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE) withdrawal of recognition of doctors operating outside the UK.

A number of initiatives have seen diving contractors in particular regions agree to mutually recognise certain doctors for such purposes and IMCA has publicised these agreements on its members’ behalf for Asia-Pacific, Central & North America, Italy, and Middle East & India.

While IMCA is not in a position to approve or recognise doctors, it welcomes this contractor initiative and is pleased to publicise the agreement, a copy of which is attached.
