G'day,

For some time now the Victorian Sub-Aqua Group (VSAG) has been working on an updated set of Dive Boat equipment recommendations and guidelines for its dive boat owners and divers.

You might like to check out the resulting documents which are now available on the VSAG web site, under downloads, in the VSAG category. See http://www.vsag.org.au/Downloads/c=1.html

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.

G'day,Today I became aware of changes effective from 1 July 2012 to consumer laws.

Thus the Boat Boat Participation Agreement and Consumer Waiver
has been updated to comply with recommendations provided by Consumer Affairs Victoria as a result of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012
, effective 1 July 2012.

See http://www.vsag.org.au/Downloads/details/id=111.html

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.

Thanks Lloydy,
We will need to make up new signs for our boats, but the good news is that this means this is now available for all states.

PW,
It would pay to refer to your state Consumer laws as the exemption from signing a waiver if a sign was displayed was introduced by the Vic Government, and I haven't seen it in the national laws (though I haven't looked hard). There were other requirements about not having any other signs near it with larger text, so the waiver would be clearly visible.

I seem to remember we were put onto this waiver a few years back by VicSport as appropriate for clubs such as ours, as well as any recreational provider.

G'day,

Today I've updated the Boat Diving Consent Form. See http://www.vsag.org.au/Downloads/details/id=113.html .

Some people were concerned that the official wording from Consumer Affairs Victoria wasn't on the actual form. Now it is.

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.
