Introduction

Diving is a voluntary movement into water with arms and head entering the water first or a voluntary

movement into water with feet entering the water first while performing acrobatics.

There can be additional requirements for purposes such as competition swimming, and advice should

be sought from the governing body of the sport in question (see [1] and [2]).

The dimensions indicated in Figures 1 to 4 and Tables 1 to 2 shall be complied with. The design of the

equipment does not need to comply with the examples given.
Platforms shall be horizontal.

NOTE 1 In addition to the length reserved for the diver (minimum distance back from plummet), additional

space can be necessary for other purposes, as wider range of dives (e.g. dives with preliminary run), space for

waiting for the dive, space for divers passing to the next platform.

If synchronized diving (more than one diver starting at a same time from the platform) is foreseen, the

width of the platforms should be suitably increased. As an alternative, during synchronized diving

activities only there should be the possibility to increase temporarily the distance of the safety barriers

for arm movement (see [1]).

The minimum dimensions of the platform facilities shall comply with Table 2 and with Figure 1.

Dimensions B and C apply to platforms with widths as in Table 1; if platform widths are increased then B, C, F and L shall be

increased by half of the additional width(s).

The dimension C applies also to combinations of platform and spring board (e.g. 5 m platform combined with a 3 m spring

board).

F is also valid for arm moves backwards, so for the 1 m platform F = 2,75 (backwards) applies.
