About ADC-UK

The Association of Diving Contractors (ADC) was set up as a separate organisation in January 1995 to represent those diving contractors who work inland and inshore in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Prior to that date the organisation had existed as the inland / inshore section of the Association of Offshore Diving Contractors (AODC).

ADC liaises on behalf of its members with the Health and Safety Executive and other organisations who recognise ADC as speaking on behalf of the majority of companies involved in this industry.

Objectives Of The ADC
  • To cultivate and promote the art and science of commercial diving within the context of its members.
  • To establish uniform safe standards and encourage industry wide observation of them.
  • To encourage the enactment and enforcement of appropriate laws for the protection and regulation of the business of commercial diving.
  • To do all such other things as seem to the Membership or Management Committee of ADC to be in their interests.
  • To monitor and advise members of current and proposed UK and relevant EC legislation and to issue general information notes connected with the industry.
