The Antarctic Division Diving Committee (ADDC) oversees all diving operations undertaken by the Australian Antarctic program. The ADDC decides on diving practices and determines whether prospective divers are suitably experienced.
We recommend that if you are planning a dive program, you ensure that all aspects of the proposed program meet with ADDC requirements before you finalise your ARA research grant application.
Principal investigators of projects requiring diving facilities should contact us two years in advance to discuss facilities and equipment required.
Projects will be required to provide their own divers and equipment.
