New Pool Legislation 2015

Written on the 27 January 2015 by Macmillans Waller Fry

The NSW State Government is introducing new swimming pool legislation aimed at reducing children drowning in backyard swimming pools. Currently, swimming pool owners are required to:

1. Register their pool on the Swimming Pool Register; and

2. Self-assess and state in the register that, to the best of their knowledge, their pool complies with the applicable standard.

The NSW State Government has prepared various self-assessment checklists and a Swimming Pools Laws fact sheet, to assist pool owners with the self-assessment and registration process.

From 29th April 2015, pool owners will be required to provide a valid Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate before selling or leasing a property with a pool. A Certificate of Compliance can be obtained by making an application to your Council. Non-compliance with pool safety requirements can result in fines of up to $5,500 for pool owners. On the spot fines of $550 can also apply.

For further information please see the Fact Sheet:
