Bryan McGlinchy, IMCA’s Diving Manager, Peter Sieniewicz IMCA’s Diving Consultant and Phil Newsum from ADCI will be amongst the leading voices from the diving industry who, under the chairmanship of Tony Greenwood of ExxonMobil, will speak about suitable measures and the best operational practices adopted across the world to safeguard divers engaged in underwater ship husbandry activities.

The IDIF was established in 2019 by three key industry stakeholders – IMCA; ADCI; and the IOGP – to reduce and control the risks associated with energy industry diving operations carried out anywhere in the world.
