Transitional note on Scientific SCUBA Diving of 8 March 2016 PDF
Instruction No 980002 IGHS of 3 December 1998 was intended to clarify the provisions of Decree No 90-277 of 28 March 1990 as amended and its implementing decrees. Today, this decree has been amended by Decree No. 2011-45 of 11 January 2011 (see below). However, all Ministerial orders implementing this decree have not yet been taken (i.e. establishments empowered to issue the CAH).
Pending these decrees and the revision of the 1998 CNRS instruction, the provisions of this transitional note are intended to clarify the position of the institution in the field of scientific SCUBA diving. Some parts of this note are in italics: these are the internal provisions taken at the CNRS, pending the publication of the statutory instruments.
As regards the medical supervision of scientific SCUBA divers, the decree of 28 March 1991 defining the recommendations to occupational physicians responsible for the medical supervision of workers working in hyperbaric environments has been repealed since 24 January 2016 by decree of 28 December 2015. However, The High Authority of Health has published recommendations of good practice (7 July 2016) PDF.
