The UK Sport Diving Medical Committee advises the British Sub-Aqua Club, Sub-Aqua Association and Scottish Sub-Aqua Club on diving medicine issues, including assessment of fitness to dive. This is conducted through a national network of medical referees with accredited diving medicine expertise, using a uniform set of medical standards which are continually reviewed as new research is published.

This website includes the most recent medical standards, an updated list of approved medical referees and reviews of recent diving medicine research. If you are a doctor with an interest in sport diving then please contact the secretary for more information.

Divers are advised to contact their local medical referee for advice rather than enquiring by email.
