Your Obligations

Do you own a swimming pool?

Every NSW pool must be registered on the NSW Swimming Pools register. If your pool is not registered, please use the below link to register your pool. It is a free service provided by the NSW government.

NSW pool safety laws were introduced on 29th April 2016 and apply to all pools (new and existing). Every pool owner must ensure their pool now complies with the applicable law depending on when their pool was built or otherwise when the pool barrier was substantially altered.

Local councils have the power to enter your property (property owner authority is not required) to investigate compliance with pool safety standards and any other issues in the backyard. If your pool barrier is found not to be compliant and/or any other issues are found in your backyard, you may receive a fine and/or a “Notice” to rectify issues.

Unless you are selling or leasing your property, you do not need a pool safety inspection or a Certificate of Compliance, however your pool still needs to be compliant at all times.
For most pool owners, it is almost impossible to understand and work out if your pool barrier complies with legislation. Most pool owners choose to get a pool safety inspection performed to ensure their pool barriers are compliant for peace of mind.
