Backyard swimming pools are popular in Australia for rest and recreation, but its important to ensure your property or development complies with regulations.

As a swimming pool owner, you are responsible for ensuring that swimming pool safety barriers, such as fencing and gates, are installed, operational, and maintained to the Australian Standard.

All gates and doors providing access to your swimming pool area should be kept closed.

If you are unsure whether your swimming pool meets the required safety standards, you may wish to apply for a swimming pool Compliance Certificate. Council staff will inspect your swimming pool and provide details of any safety issues. Once these issues have been addressed and a second inspection has been carried out, a Compliance Certificate will be issued.
