Special Rules
 Flying after diving – wait 12 hours or for
repetitive dives and/or multiple days wait
18 hours (suggested)
 Cold – add 10 feet
 1000’ altitude limit for RDP
 Safety Stop – always do a safety stop
 A Safety Stop is REQUIRED for dives 100’
plus or within three letter groups of NDL, or
NDL
 Ascend no faster than 60 feet per minute
Emergency Decompression
 If a no decompression limit is exceeded by
no more than 5 minutes, an 8 minute
decompression stop at 15 feet is
mandatory. Upon surfacing the diver must
stay out of the water for at least 6 hours.
 If a no decompression limit is exceeded by
more than 5 minutes a 15 foot
decompression stop at 15 feet is urged (air
supply permitting). Upon surfacing the
diver must remain out of the water for at
least 24 hours before making another dive.
