Unit Register Announcement
PADI maintains a register of rebreathers that manufacturers specify meet the key features of a Type R (Recreational) or Type T (Technical) rebreather and have successfully undergone recognized third-party testing against an appropriate standard such as EN14143. Only rebreathers included in this register can be used for PADI rebreather courses. PADI Members can find the register on the PADI Pros’ Site.
Note that the PADI organization does not approve, review or endorse the design or manufacturing of scuba equipment, including rebreathers.

Currently, three manufacturers have registered units and made the following statements:

Poseidon
“Our Poseidon Discovery MK VI rebreather meets the key features of a Type R rebreather and has successfully undergone internationally recognized third-party testing against CE Standards (EN14143). We have checked the Type R requirements against our Poseidon Discovery MK VI rebreather’s performance and found that it meets PADI’s Type R standards in full.”

VR Technology
“Our Sentinel and Sentinel Expedition rebreathers meet the key features of a Type T CCR and have successfully undergone internationally recognized third-party testing against CE Standards (EN14143). We have checked the Type T requirements against our Sentinel and Sentinel Expedition rebreathers’ performance and found that they meet PADI’s Type T standards in full.”

Ambient Pressure Diving
“Our Inspiration, Evolution and Evolution Plus Vision rebreathers meet the key features of Type T rebreathers and have successfully undergone internationally recognized third-party testing against CE Standards (EN14143). We have checked the Type T requirements against our Inspiration, Evolution and Evolution Plus Vision rebreathers’ performance and found that they meet PADI’s Type T standards in full.”
