Advice over common pitfalls Below is a list of advice from one of our Diving Technical Advisers, regarding the most common pitfalls in a submission for IMCA Diving Contractor membership: We request all documents to be submitted to us in English.

In the membership audit assessment procedure, we have provided Table 1 — Documentation to be submitted by the applicant diving company. Any omissions could cause delays in the assessment process, with requests for extra documents. Throughout Table 1 — Documentation to be submitted by the applicant diving company, we request CVs; please make sure that you include copies of relevant certificate to go with the requested CVs, as these often get omitted.

In Section 3, we request a number of documents from item 3. This is a similar requirement for item 3. In Section 4, item 4. Certificates must be included alongside CVs.

In section 5, IMCA need to see that your company has sufficient plant and equipment to operate an offshore diving job and that it is properly maintained. This audit must include any non-conformances and how they have been tracked, and closed out.
