how it works

The process of ensuring you meet your regulatory requirements


Register your pool

Register your pool or spa with your local Council prior to the 1 November 2020.

You council will then issue you with a statement on when the pool/spa was installed.

If you prefer we offer a ‘Concierge’ service that includes lodgement and registration with council on your behalf.



Safety Barrier Inspection

Book your inspection with Pool Safe  Compliance and we will schedule a time and day that suits you to carry out a site inspection and provide a detailed report on any issues found.  If there are no safety issues,  a certificate of compliance will be issued within 48 hours.


Non-Compliance Issues

If non-compliance issues are found, you will be given a timeframe to rectify these issues, which by law is a maximum of 60 days.  If the non-compliance concerns are not rectified within the required timeframe a Certificate of  Non-Compliance will be issued, which may incur additional council fees or penalties.

If you are concerned your pool may not be compliant, we suggest booking our preliminary inspection to avoid any stressful legislative-imposed timelines or fees.


Certificate Lodgement

We will issue you with a certificate of compliance within 48 hours which is to be lodged with your local Council before the due date specified. 


Automated Reminder

Our set and forget reminder service ensure you will receive reminder notices well ahead of when your next inspection is due to ensure your pool or spa meets your regulatory requirements.
