Air Purity update – Summer 2019

With diving activity ramping-up rapidly as we approach the Summer 2019-2020 season, the team at Air Purity Limited thought it timely to update the New Zealand diving community on its services and the coming change of ROC tags from 2019 to 2020.

Improvements to services -

Currently, the Air Purity Board is looking at how to structure the operational team to best serve the industry’s needs, which will mean some roles will change. However, the intention is to keep on all current personal/contractors in some capacity.

The provision of essential industry services such as SCAP, ROC, air and filler testing, MSCDB and DAS qualifications remains a priority for Air Purity and its growing nationwide network of contractors.

Improvements in the delivery of these services and more remain central to Air Purity’s obligation to the industry and are earmarked to benefit from further development by key team members and the APL board.

Air Purity and parent organisation NZ Underwater’s position as voices for the industry with WorkSafe and government agencies Water Safety NZ and Maritime NZ continues to strengthen via on-going networking and the delivery of safety campaigns for divers.

As an asset to NZ Underwater, APL’s growth in the sector of pure air services looks positive.

2020 ROC (Ring of Confidence) and Christmas trading hours -

Air Purity reminds new and existing customers of ROC that the new dark-green coloured ROC for 2020 commences use on the 1st of January.

Orders for dark-green 2020 ROC can be placed via the website or by calling the office immediately. Shipping of received orders commences from 11th December 2019.


The use of grey 2019 ROC must cease on 31st December 2019. Only the new dark-green 2020 ROC is to be deployed from January the 1st.

Please ensure sufficient orders of the 2020 ROC are placed well in advance of the Air Purity Christmas break date of Wednesday the 18th of December. The office will be closed from midday Wednesday the 18th of December 2019 to Monday the 13th of January 2020.

The Air Purity team extends its thanks for your continued business and wishes a Happy Christmas, a safe summer diving season and a successful year ahead in 2020!

On behalf of Air Purity Limited,

Steve Bishop and Andrea Macfarlane.
