We've recently discovered printer errors in certain Recreational Dive
Planners (RDPs). The problems may appear in six (6) versions of the RDP,
including both air and enriched air tables. Our printer is working
diligently with us to correct his error.

 
These tables may be included in Open Water and Enriched Air Crew Paks, book
and table combinations, CD-ROM combinations and alacart tables shipped
between 1 October 2002 and 31 January 2003. Please note that not all RDPs
you may have received during this period contain printer errors.

 
While analysis of the problems shows that the risk of injury from the
errors is remote, for the sake of safety, we feel a broad approach to this
issue should be taken. We ask that you immediately check your existing
inventory and remove any RDPs you received from PADI with the product
numbers and production codes listed below. The product number and
production code is generally located on the bottom right hand corner on the
back of the table. The product number and production code consist of a
series of numbers and letters resembling: Product No. 60049 XXXPDJ2.

 
There may also be a revision date (Rev 10/02) and/or version number
(Version 1.0) listed. These numbers are inconsequential. In checking the
production code for inaccurate tables, please ignore the first three digits
and only check the last four.

If you have RDPs with the product numbers and production codes listed above
in your inventory, please notify your PADI Sales Representative at once.
And, as previously stated, please remove these RDPs from your inventory
immediately. Upon notification from you, we will issue call tags for the
return of the misprinted RDPs and send out replacements.

 
We will be notifying divers certified after 01 October 2002 via the PADI
web site, email and other means. They will be directed to bring their
misprinted RDPs into PADI Dive Centers/Resorts for free exchange. We ask
for your assistance by including this information in your newsletters and
any other correspondence that you have with your customers.

 
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and your customers.
