Medical examination of divers: Italy 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 from doctors operating outside the UK. Subsequently, four members and three other diving contractors in Italy, through their association AISI (Associazione Imprese Subacquee Italiane – a corresponding member of IMCA in its own right) have agreed to jointly recognise a number of doctors to conduct diver medicals to the standard cited in IMCA D 20/01. While IMCA is not in a position to approve or recognise doctors (for clarity, no doctor is ‘IMCA approved’), it welcomes this contractor initiative and is pleased to publicise the agreement, a copy of which is attached.

Originally issued with the following reference(s): IMCA D 11/9
