BSAC International is a British trading company wholly owned by BSAC and 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.
In 2023 BSAC Egypt officially launched to offer diving and snorkelling in the Red Sea.
Based in the Red Sea resort of Hurghada, BSAC Egypt is a Chamber of Diving and Watersports (CDWS) accredited training agency. It has more than 20 instructors who are qualified to deliver BSAC’s programme of scuba diving and snorkel training, as well as guiding and liveaboard holidays.
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.
