By the 1960s it had grown to 10 branches and has enlarged steadily thereafter. There are now around 70 branches with over 1250 Members. Branches are found in many locations in Scotland with a number in the North of England.

The National Diving Council (NDC) is an advisory body responsible for assisting the National Diving Officer with the diving and training activities. The NDC maintains the standardisation and high standards of training throughout ScotSAC and provides information on all questions concerning diving and training.
