Swimming Pool Fence Inspections

Currently, 95% of existing swimming pool fences do not comply, that need to meet current Australian Standards.

It is your responsibility as a pool owner to ensure your pool fence complies with Australian Standards 1926.1-2012 and the Swimming Pools Act 1992.

All swimming pools and spas containing more than 30 cm of water must be surrounded by a compliant pool fence.

Pool Fencing Regulations

Are you aware:

  • All swimming pools and spas in New South Wales must be registered on the NSW Swimming Pool Register, as of 29th October 2003.
  • From 29th April 2016 all NSW properties with a swimming pool or spa pool require a certificate of compliance before they can be sold or leased.
  • All Swimming pools in New South Wales will be inspected for compliance under Council's new ongoing pools inspecton program until all pools have been inspected and reach compliance.
