Abstract
Standards are divided into two sections: the regulations themselves, and the technical narrative and references which explain and support the regulations. Several problems, related primarily to the constraints imposed on the standards by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, are discussed. They include recommendations for a central registry and mandatory autopsies for commercial divers, exclusion of sport scuba and research divers from coverage by this standard, initial medical examination, attempts to aid divers in life threatening situations, and review and revision of commercial diving regulations to enable the legislation to keep with the rate of technological change in the diving industry.
