To assist in the promotion of safe and enjoyable diving, the New Zealand Underwater Association collects, analyses and reports on diving incidents and accidents in New Zealand. The information is used to monitor trends, identify common factors and improve diver safety through education. All information received by NZUA is strictly confidential. No individual names, contact details or information that would lead to a person being identified will appear in any report or publication.

New Zealand Underwater works closely with other organisations with similar goals in diver safety. The information collected on the incident report forms is also sent to the international dive safety organisation Divers Alert Network South East Asia, to assist them in their mission to improve diver safety in this region. For the purpose of maintaining as complete and accurate records as possible, information on diver incidents collected by NZUA will be shared with Water Safety New Zealand.
