Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate - New South Wales

Description

You will require this certificate to verify that a swimming pool meets certain safety requirements (e.g. child resistant barriers around the pool). Swimming pools include any excavation, structure or vessel that can be filled with water to a depth greater than 30 centimetres (including spa pools, but not spa baths).

These safety requirements apply to all swimming pools that exist, or are to be built, on residential property or property that is used for visitor or tourist accommodation.

Please note that a new registration scheme has been implemented and all pools will now need to be registered on the NSW pool register.

The owner of any property on which a swimming pool is located must ensure that it is registered and meets the relevant safety requirements. Before being able to sell or lease a property that includes a swimming pool owners will need to have the pool inspected and have received a certificate of compliance.

There will also be mandatory inspections (at least once every 3 years) of swimming pools on any properties that have more than 2 dwellings or are used for tourist or visitor accommodation. Swimming pools that meet the relevant safety requirements will be issued a certificate of compliance.

Please consult directly with the Council for more information.
