The Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI) was founded in 1968 by a small group of diving companies. Their goal was to create a non-profit organization to cultivate and promote the art and science of commercial diving, establish uniform safe standards for commercial divers, and encourage industry-wide observance of these standards. Since then, ADCI has grown to encompass more than 500 member companies. The membership, although primarily US companies, also includes companies from 41 other nations, all of whom have pledged to comply with the ADCI Consensus Standards for Commercial Diving Operations. In short, ADCI is an organization with diverse membership with worldwide scope, well respected for maintaining a consistent position regarding safe underwater operations. ADCI has no regulatory jurisdiction but does carefully attempt to ensure that its member companies fully comply with national regulations. The ADCI Consensus Standards for Commercial Diving and Underwater Operations was developed to promote the highest degree of safety. The ADCI Membership Audit program and ADCI Certification Card programs help ensure companies are operating at the highest possible levels of safety. The ADCI Consensus Standards are recognized by both the US Coast Guard and OSHA as meeting or exceeding US federal regulations. The ADCI is governed by an elected Board of Directors and supported by a full time Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer and staff. The Board of Directors and Officers are elected on an annual basis with terms of office staggered for a three year period. Make a difference – join today. 46
