The Diver Certification Board of Canada (DCBC) has begun studies to create a
certification regime for operators of Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV) in Canadian waters.
The founding mission of the
DCBC is to provide a national, Canadian diving certification regime for professional diving personnel, based on a single
national standard of competencies, in order to enhance industry safety by demonstrating personal competency. The DCBC
believes that the competence of the operator of an ROV directly impacts on the safety of the divers who often work in the
same underwater area as the ROV.
