From 30 November 2015 only one pool safety standard will apply in Queensland. All pools, including spas and some portable pools, must comply with the standard by this date or before if the property is sold or leased.
Detailed information can be found on the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) website.
View the QBCC pool safety compliance video for an overview of the new pool safety standard requirements.
To ensure your pool is compliant:
- get advice from a pool safety inspector about how to make your pool comply, or
- contract a pool safety inspector to do a formal inspection with a view to getting a certificate.
A pool safety inspector's role is to inspect pools to determine whether they comply with the standard. Search for a swimming pool safety inspector by:
- your local government area, or
- entering the inspector's name, business name or licence number.
Council has a pool safety brochure [PDF 400KB] that provides further information.
