ADCI represents the commercial diving industry around the world. Founded in 1968, the Association of Diving Contractors International, Inc. was originally a small group of diving companies with a goal to create a nonprofit organization dedicated to the art and science of commercial diving. The establishment of industry-wide safe standards for commercial diving was the foundation upon which ADCI was built. Since then, ADCI has grown to encompass more than 600 member companies, furnishing services and/or support for the conduct of safe underwater operations from 41 nations throughout the world.
