Your Obligations

Do you own a swimming pool?

Queensland’s pool safety laws were introduced in 2009 and apply to all pools (new and existing). Every pool owner must ensure their pool now complies with the Pool Safety Standard (QDCMP3.4 – Swimming Pool Barriers) by the 30th November 2015 deadline.

Local governments now have the power to enter your property (property owner authority is not required) to investigate compliance with pool safety standards and if your pool barrier is found not to be compliant, you may receive an on-the-spot fine.

Unless you are selling or leasing your property, you do not need a pool safety inspection or a pool safety certificate, however your pool still needs to be compliant. For most pool owners, it is almost impossible to understand and work out if your pool barrier complies with legislation. Most pool owners only need advisory services from a pool safety inspector.
