    So, there's a chance that BSAC has been fighting our corner!

    Alongside all the other UK Agencies, the RSTC and the HSE etc of course...

    That'll save some of us a few pennies though (assuming ISO approve the draft text).
    Since BSAC will be responsible for the periodic risk assessment, maybe that means they have finally found their niche as the UK Governing Body for Recreational Scuba Diving?

    (I wonder if they will institute annual returns from all their members, with an additional fee per cylinder owned? - that would be the HMRC, Ryanair or British Airways approach, after all.)

    From what I've heard it was, in fact, just The BSAC rep who swung it.

    Thank you for linking that Barry. It shows not only what a superb ambassador Gavin has been for BSAC in this matter, but also how complex the issue is and how IDEST have actually played a valuable role in providing evidence for, and implementing, a safe yet pragmatic approach to cylinder testing in the UK.
