About Us
The Association of Diving Contractors (ADC) is the trading name of UK ADC Ltd, the industry body representing diving contractors working Inland/Inshore in the UK and Ireland that constantly seeks to:
  • Actively cultivate and promote the art and science of commercial diving within the context of the activities of its members
  • Establish uniform safe standards and operating practices
  • Encourage industry wide observation of such standards and operating practices
  • Encourage the enactment and enforcement of appropriate laws for the protection and regulation of the business of commercial diving
  • Do any such other things as considered by the membership or management committee of ADC to be in the interest of this industry sector

ADC represents members working in what is probably the most diverse sector of the various work areas covered by Diving at Work Regulations 1997 and its appropriate Approved Codes of Practice.

With a membership that extends from the very smallest diving contractors working in swimming pools, rivers, lakes and harbours to those working in the outer most reaches of UK coastal waters in depths varying from less than 1m to a maximum of 50m. The sheer range and variety of activities carried out in this sector are almost as wide as some river estuaries where work takes place. The objective of this website is to introduce interested parties to the full scope of activities carried out by the Association."
