The format has also been changed slightly to improve ease of use and provide better referencing. Known globally by its reference number IMCA D , this guidance, addresses various aspects of a surface orientated diving system as utilised within the offshore diving industry and aims to provide a comprehensive reference source addressing the philosophy of what equipment and layout is required for a safe diving operation, plus the examination, test and certification requirements necessary to meet agreed industry practice. Cross-references to this Code are provided where appropriate. The information in the guidance is presented in the form of detail sheets, each of which specifies the requirements for a generic item of plant or equipment, or a group of items, which are covered by the same criteria. The testing requirements identified will normally correspond with the certification that the diving contractor maintains in a plant and equipment register, or records in the planned maintenance system. Only generic items of diving plant and equipment are addressed, and the detail sheets do not include information on constituent parts of ancillary equipment.
