Laws and regulations

For scuba diving in spain:

At this point we would like to explain some things ,which we are asked very often and which cause a lot of uncertainly and trouble.

Certification
A dive certification on entry level of aworldwide aceptet organisation like PADI OWD,CMAS*, or BSAC*.

Medical
This is one thing we hear daily from our divers.It`s already required by spanish law and it`s not up to us to change the law,because primary it is your safety!The dive insurances will not paying if you don`t follow the local laws!The medical has to be valid,means not older than 2 years when younger than 40,1 year when older.You can get it here from our doctors.

Legal or ilegal
General,even when you choice another dive center make shure they work in a legal matter!
Some question you may ask for:
Licence of the dive center? Apuertura
Proof of the insurances of the divecenter or intructors?
Valid certification of the instructor?
Working contracts?
Member /owner of the decompression chamber?
Do they have an own boat(required by law no rental contracts are allowed),and if is it registered on list 6 ,list 7 is ilegal for professional use!
Ask the Staff for the medical?
Is the stuff in a good condition?
Ask for CE certifications for Compressor or if they have an idustrial proyect for the center or compressor?

Access to a decompression chamber
Another strange thing here is that infact we have a privat runned decompression chamber in jandia,a lot of divecenters count it on there advertising or homepages wihout having acontract with the chamber!They didn`have the emergency plans and numbers,so when having an accident just call 112 and waiting what happens.The Owners and members thinking that is extrmly unsocial or more.It`s up to you to support the legal divecenters!
