TIDF Complying with ISO Standards

The Israeli Diving Federation courses are certified as compliant with ISO standards for Recreational Diving Services

In early 2012, the Israeli Diving Federation (TIDF) decided that it was appropriate to conduct a quality test for the organization by external and independent reviewers.

The TIDF invites auditors from the Austrian Standards Institute to carry out an audit review according to the  International Standards Organization - ISO

In recent years, ISO has established international standards that define:

  • Five Diving Standards.
  • Two standards for diving training.
  • Diving service providers.
