UK (11 Aug 2006) -- In an attempt to reassure the public after the recent scuba diving death of mother-of-two Lesley Clark, Jim Watson, BSAC safety and development manager, said: "We collate information on incidents throughout the UK and publish them in an annual incident report".

But dive safety experts and industry critics cite such regional "incident" reports by BSAC and DAN as a smokescreen that conceals the full extent of scuba diving risks and the steady increase of scuba-related accidents worldwide.

"The vast majority of modern divers are scuba diving all over the world and therefore it is imperative that we understand the full extent of diving safety issues from a global perspective," said CDNN Dive Safety Editor Luther Monroe. "Diver safety transcends national boundaries and territorial marketing agreements," Monroe added.  "It is a disservice to the global diving community and hypocritical for BSAC, DAN and other dive industry organizations to boast about their global networks yet publish scuba diving accident reports limited by territorial sales and marketing contracts."
