It is recommended that all swimming pool owners obtain a Compliance Certificate to ensure that their pool is compliant and/or any non-compliant issues are pointed out and can, therefore, be addressed to maximise the safety of your loved ones and to minimise risk. Given the increase in recent drownings in backyard swimming pools it has been suggested that a Certificate of Compliance may become mandatory for all swimming pool owners in the near future.
Prior to your swimming pool barrier consultation or inspection, you will be asked to provide information that substantiates when the construction of your swimming pool commenced and if any substantial alterations or modifications have occurred in relation to the swimming pool barrier. The date of construction of your swimming pool will determine which prescribed legislative Australian Standard is relevant to the compliance of your swimming pool. There are some exemptions to the standards and the certifier will also require information pertaining to the size of your property and whether it is a waterfront property so that they can ensure the correct Australian Standard is used.
