New Safety Laws for Owners of Pools & Spas

New laws introduced by the Victorian Government in December 2019 require that any swimming pool or spa that can hold water to depth greater than 30cm must be registered with your local council by 1 November 2020, and your swimming pool or spa barrier must be inspected and certified every four years.

The following checklists are designed to enable you to assess the safety of your barrier. The checklists are based on the relevant barrier standard associated with the date your swimming pool or spa was installed.

Checklist 1

For pools and spas installed before the 8th of April 1991.

Checklist 2

For pools and spas installed between the 8th of April 1991 and the 30th of April 2010.

Checklist 3

For pools and spas that were installed from the 1st of May 2010.
