OPERATING OF SHORE-BASED HYPERBARIC FACILITIES
CHAPTER 2
2.1
GUIDANCE
DOCUMENTS
2.1.1
U.S. Navy Diving Manual, Volumes 1 & 2, NAVSEA
Publications  0994-LP-001-9010  and  9020.
This  manual  contains
limited guidance concerning maintenance and general guidance on
operational procedures for diving and hyperbaric chamber systems.
Information in the U.S. Navy Diving Manual which is pertinent to
shore-based  hyperbaric  facilities  includes:  hyperbaric  physics,
hyperbaric physiology, operations planning, diver-carried equipment
maintenance,
medical
emergency
procedures
a n d  equipment,
recompression  chamber  treatment  tables,  recompression  chamber
operation,
and
general
recompression
chamber
maintenance
guidelines.
2.1.2
U.S.  Navy  Diving  and  Manned  Hyperbaric  Systems
Safety  Certification  Manual,  NAVSEA  TM  SS521-AA-MAN-010.
This
instruction is a set of guidelines for the designer and/or builder
of a U.S. Navy Diving and Manned Hyperbaric System, which includes
any  noncombatant  submersible,  in  or  on-bottom  habitat,  diving
system, diving equipment, or hyperbaric facility, that is intended
for use by Navy or government personnel. Areas addressed include:
system certification process; design, construction, fabrication and
assembly guidelines; testing, quality assurance, operability and
maintainability  guidelines;  system  certification  surveys;  and
tenure of certification.  Additional information is provided in the
appendices  to  SS521-AA-MAN-010  on:  categorization  of  scope  of
certification  materials  and  components;  design  parameters  for
diving systems; design parameters for implodable and explodable
items:  general  guidelines  for  atmospheric  evaluation  of  manned
diving  systems;  general  guidelines  for  cleaning  breathing  gas
systems: general guidelines for diving system handling systems; and
general guidelines for re-entry control.
2.1.3
Certification
The  Certification
Certificate.
Certificate is the document which each facility must obtain from
the NAVFAC System Certification Authority (SCA) prior to conducting
diving  or  manned  hyperbaric
with  a  particular
operations
system/facility.
The certification certificate is issued by the
NAVFAC SCA after:
the system technical documentation has been
reviewed to ensure that materials have been procured, fabricated,
installed, cleaned and tested properly: the SCA has conducted an
onsite  survey  to  verify  design  compliance;  and  a  successful
operational demonstration "dive" of the system to its certifiable
limits is witnessed by the SCA or an authorized representative of
the SCA.
