Willkommen bei WSDS (World Safety Diving Standards)

As a versatile nature sport, diving is practised worldwide with its wide-ranging interests in all oceans and diveable freshwaters. Many manufacturers, distribution systems, instructors and organisations around the world offer a high level of safety and sustainability.

The WSDS (World Safety Diving Standards), as an international organization, is particularly engaged in the recognition of diving on a public level and for contemporary, comparable international safety standards and uncomplicated lists of equivalence based on the EN-ISO standards.

It is a special intention of the WSDS to make these standards available to all official institutions responsible for diving tourism – especially in the fields of diving safety, environmental and biodiversity protection in terms of sustainability. In close contact with all, the WSDS serves the forward-looking development of diving. For its members, it is a mediator, supporter and protagonist in the interests of international diving.

Organizations that are involved in the underwater world with their business or voluntary activities should commit themselves to a common future of diving, because diving needs a common international voice that pursues the interests of diving and does also push forward the protection of the hydrosphere and their inhabitants.

Dr. Friedrich Naglschmid – President of WSDS International
