Founded in the United States in 2010, the International Diving Safety Standards Commission (IDSSC) is dedicated to the worldwide diving regulations. Currently, its headquarters are located in Argentina


Our mission is to advise divers, professionals and companies on the latest standards and procedures for safe diving.
Investigate and store in our database, all reports received about diving problems that occurred in different parts of the world.
Find solutions to each of the problems associated with diving, depending on the location and condition of underwater operations.
Mantain the philosophy that every diver is a person with a high human value and not a number with high level of trade.


The IDSSC has evaluated and accepted the most modern diving standards and regulations created by the best organizations worldwide and adopted by different international companies. In many cases, the commission has added criteria necessary to adapt the standards to more demanding diving conditions according to the reality of certain regions. The IDSSC objectives are:

-To take care of the integrity of the diver and the work team.
-Keep the levels of operational insecurity low.
-To optimize the resources of the divers and the companies.
-Promote the most complete diving standards.
-To give reference in those countries where they do not have National Standards.
-To support the national standards of the governments and to be able to contribute in case it is requested.

IDSSC is a worldwide membership organization restricted to individuals, dive schools, companies and diver training agencies that accept the most modern and comprehensive dive standards and procedures endorsed by IDSSC.
