Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

Introduction

The diving community has a unique capability and therefore responsibility in observing and reporting

on the condition of the aquatic environment. This document elaborates on how the recreational

diving community can make use of this capability while ensuring that full consideration is given to

environmentally sustainable interaction with the aquatic environment. It provides guidance on how

divers can positively affect the aquatic environment through activities such as underwater cleanups

and aquatic surveys.

In diver training and diving activities divers must have an awareness of their environmental impact.

This should include actively minimising any negative aspects, both potential and actual. Such training

should encourage awareness of positive actions.
This document is intended to benefit the following stakeholders:
— divers and snorkellers;
— diving instructors and guides;
— dive centres, schools or clubs;
— dive boat operators;
— diver training organisations;
— tour operators offering diving holidays;

— governmental and other bodies seeking information on diving and the aquatic environment.
