Australian Standard AS 1926.1-2012 Swimming Pool Safety - Fencing for Swimming Pools - Victoria


You will be required to comply with this standard if you are the owner of a swimming pool or spa, or are in charge of the building of a pool.

Building regulations require you to ensure that a fence and gate complying with this standard are installed to restrict access to the swimming pool or spa.

This standard establishes safety requirements for design, construction and performance of barriers, windows and door-sets for swimming pools of the types normally installed for private use. It is also applicable for public use if consideration is taken of the differing dynamics of public swimming pools to private swimming pools.
