Diving cylinders: Guidance on their manufacture, inspection and carriage

This is part of a series of information sheets providing guidance on diving at work. The information is also relevant to the recreational diving sector.

The new Carriage of Dangerous Goods (CDG) Regulations 20091 have now made it clear that cylinders used for breathing apparatus are not within the scope of these Regulations. This information sheet provides guidance on the manufacture, inspection and carriage of diving cylinders in light of this change.
