    Your right sorry. Yeah in the United States each state will have different laws and regulations. In Utah if you are in a State Park (which most lakes and reservoirs are) then you are required to descend and surface within a specified distance to the flag.

    Since Andres had been asking in English and we are parzicipating in an english froum. why don't you post the information for the majority of the divers who might be interested in the different legislations...

    It is quite good to know that in the US each individual state has it's own legislation and that in Utah you have to uns the "divers flag"..
    If I got that right at all with my inferior knowledge of the spanish language..

    Just my dos pesos da Allemania..

    Once again thanks.
    Hi I live in the Valencia area and shore dive from beaches and coves from Denia to Calpe.
    I and others dive without any harassment from Policia Local or Guardia Nacional.

    I think that the application of the law and your current problems may be helped by some enchuffe! I suggest that you go to the local Guardia office in your town and very politely ask for el Jefe. There will be one. Don't be fobbed off. Once you get to speak to him explain the situation calmly and clearly. I have found at in fact the Guardia are most helpful.

    BTW. Article16 is in the professional diving regulations therefore does not apply to recreational diving unless of course you are taking divers down for payment.

    There is a provisional draft for new safety regulations in discussion with the responsible ministry since 2005, but due to lack of interest(time) from the Spanish Diving Federation and other diving groups (PADI,SSI, etc) nothing more has been done. If the pressure to divers increases with fines etc. there will be a renewed interest in the draft and I`m sure for the next diving season a change will come about. Spain, France, Italy and now Portugal have laws concerning diving (Spain since 1969). The rest of european countries don`t have laws about sport/tech diving (Except in some cases such UK, where diving at work HSE must be taken into account- Teaching scuba for money/comercial diving etc.). One must remember that sport diving started in the south of Europe, and thats where it has been written into laws and the big number of divers live. The Diving industry in north european countries is not very important(with the exception of Rebreather manufactures) as in workers/people living professionally from sport diving.
