Pool Safety Compliance Certification

Pool Safety Compliance Certification


Save lives by ensuring your pool and/or outdoor spa are compliant. When selling, purchasing or tenanting a home with a pool, the home must comply with your state pool safety regulations.

Our professional, experienced and licensed inspectors will conduct a thorough inspection of your pool safety barriers, highlighting any defects/hazards and provide you with recommendations for the most cost effective way to meet the requirements.

Once any required rectifications are completed to the required standards and evidence provided to the inspector, we will issue you with a Compliance Certificate.

Inspections are carried out in accordance with the following Australian Standards:

  • AS 1926.1-2012 Swimming pool safety Part 1: Safety barriers for swimming pools
  • AS 1926.2-2012 Swimming pool safety Part 2: Location of safety barriers for swimming pools
  • AS 1926.3-2012 Swimming pool safety Part 3: Water recirculation systems 

The enforcement of swimming pool safety requirements is the responsibility of the local council. A person who contravenes or fails to comply with the swimming pool safety requirements is guilty of an offence. Maximum penalty is $15, 000.

Subject to safe and reasonable access, the inspection will assess the condition of each of the following areas on the date and time of inspection:

Boundary BarriersIncludes pool boundary fences (glass and other), non-climbable zones (NCZ), strength tests and  retaining walls
