Chapter 5 describes the objectives and importance of maintaining accurate records. The Diving Officer, Master Diver, and Diving Supervisor should identify the records required for their respective systems and tailor them to suit their needs. The purpose of any record is to provide an accurate and detailed account of every facet of the diving operation and a tabulation of supplies expended to support the operation (e.g., gases, carbon dioxide absorbent, etc.). Any unusual circumstances regarding dive conduct (i.e., treatments, operational/emergency procedures, or deviation from procedures) established in the U.S. Navy Diving Manual shall be brought to the attention of the Commanding Officer and logged in the Command Smooth Diving Log.
