Summary of 2021 DESIGN Changes for Hyperbaric Rescue Unit (HRU) Life Support Packages (LSP)

IMCA D 024 Rev. 2 DESIGN for saturation (bell) diving systems was published in July 2014. Section 16 of that document covered DESIGN requirements for Hyperbaric Rescue Unit Life Support Packages. During the preparation of IMCA D 024 Rev. 3, it was recognised that an LSP is kept in a different physical location to the equipment covered by IMCA D 024, and so the LSP should have its own separate DESIGN document.

In view of the above, Section 16 of IMCA D 024 Rev. 2 was not included in IMCA D 024 Rev. 3. The DESIGN requirements for an LSP are now published in the stand-alone document IMCA D 063 DESIGN for Hyperbaric Rescue Unit (HRU) Life Support Packages (LSP).

This Information Note summarises the changes that were made during the D 024 Section 16 to IMCA D 063 update process.
