(QLD) When is a pool safety certificate required?

Recently, the Pool Safety Council received complaints about pool safety inspectors incorrectly informing pool owners that they need to obtain a pool safety certificate by 30 November 2015, even if they do not sell or lease the property.

A pool safety certificate is generally only required if there is a sale or lease of a property with a regulated swimming pool. The only other situation where a pool safety certificate is required is when the owner of a class 1a property (single dwelling) is constructing a pool fence and obtains a pool safety certificate in place of applying for a building development application under schedule 2C of the Building Regulation 2006.
