The Regulations protect the safety, health and welfare of all personnel involved in carrying out diving operations in the course of their work.
They set out a clear framework of responsibilities and specify duty holders such as clients, diving supervisor, diving contractor, divers and other persons engaged in the diving project and their duties. These Regulations expand on and replace the existing legislation and now apply to any diving project in which a person who dives is at work, they also revoke the Safety in Industry (Diving Operations) Regulations, 1981 (SI No 422 of 1981).
The Regulations shall come into operation from 1 May 2019.
