Pools capable of holding more than 300mm of water, must comply with the Queensland pool safety standard.

This includes:

  • swimming pools
  • spas
  • portable and inflatable swimming pools.

Council's pool safety brochure[390KB] offers more information.

To ensure your pool is compliant:

  • check you have a building approval, and
  • 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 decide if they meet the safety standard. Search for a swimming pool safety inspector.

Refer to the Queensland Building and Construction Commission website for more information.
