Reducing diving-related accidents
ISO standards help the business to comply with regulations, in conjunction with third-party certification by an accredited certification body, and they also help demonstrate to potential customers and authorities that they are providing quality services. The lack of any specific national regulations in the diving instructor sector,has led many countries to adopt the ISO series of standards on recreational diving as being the industry requirement. Egypt, that made the ISO standards a legal requirement for its dive centres, registered a 24 % decrease in the number of diving-related accidents over a two year period.
