BSAC International is a British trading company wholly owned by the Club formed to administer a royalty franchise system.
In 1987 BSAC International, in turn, franchised BSAC Japan to manage the development and operation of a parallel BSAC training and certification system for Japanese divers.
The success of BSAC Japan encouraged the formation of our BSAC Korea franchise in 1994 and BSAC Thailand in 2009.
BSAC Japan was founded in 1987 with its headquarters in Osaka and has since expanded with training centres and members throughout Japan. Currently, BSAC Japan has some 115 training centres employing more than 800 instructors.
BSAC Korea was founded in 1994 with its headquarters in Seoul and has since expanded with training centres and members throughout South Korea. Currently BSAC Korea has some 50 training centres employing more than 350 instructors.
BSAC Thailand was launched in May 2009 and is under license from BSAC UK. BSAC Thailand provides local support to Thai Dive Centres and local BSAC Branches.
