Guidance for carrying out inspections of underwater, inland and coastal structures to depths of 30m - including inspection techniques, equipment and safety.

This publication provides advice to engineers, their clients and supporting contractors (all of whom may not have in-depth knowledge of underwater inspection techniques) so that inspections can be conducted safely, and provide accurate and meaningful information. Provisions of the Diving at Work Regulations 1997 and the associated Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) are also taken into account. The guidance includes information on:

  • Typical defects (e.g. scour, erosion, local corrosion)

  • Inspection planning

  • Inspection and investigation

  • Diving/non-diving techniques

  • Contract documents

  • Tenders for diving contracts

  • Responsibilities on site
