An important part of what BSAC does is work to protect the interests of our members and other scuba divers.

BSAC has ongoing project work with the aim of protecting our seas and to support divers in respecting our wrecks.

In addition to that, from time to time as the national governing body for scuba diving in the UK we rise up and become the voice of divers on specific national (or sometimes international) issues affecting divers.

Recent examples include campaigning against the closure of the St Abbs lifeboat (2015), campaigning against the proposed increase to the frequency of cylinder testing (2016-17) and work to keep Portland’s Search and Rescue Service helicopter in operation (2017).

If there is an issue that’s affecting your diving or snorkelling, that you would like us to get involved in, please contact BSAC Chief Executive Mary Tetley via email.
