There is a medical self-declaration form to complete as one of the requirements for BSAC membership on joining, which has to be filled annually upon re-joining. This process may be especially essential when there’s any medical condition arisen between those times.
You can refer to the latest information accessible through the UKDMC website, in addition to all forms relevant and available for download in order to complete all the requirements necessary for the BSAC membership application. They include:
- Diver medical self declaration
- Medical self declaration system explanation
- Fitness to dive examination form
- Medical referee form
- Frequently asked questions
- List of medical referees

Aside from the mandatory self declaration process, some members may still want to go through a medical examination to complete the BSAC medical form. Even so, only the UKDMC referee who can endorse the certificate, titled UKDMC fitness to dive certificate. For a medical examination, you can perform one with your own GP or a medical assessment from a UKDMC referee where the certificate thus can be issued later.
