Swimming Pool Fencing
New pool safety legislation – Stage 2
The Queensland State Government has introduced new legislation for all regulated swimming pools which will take effect on 1 December 2010. The new state legislation is aimed at further reducing the number of immersion injuries and drowning of young children.
What do I have to do as a pool owner?
- Register your pool on the Pool Safety Register before 4 May 2011
- Ensure your pool fencing complies with the new pool safety standard before 30 November 2015
For more information about the new legislation visit the Queensland Government's Department of Infrastructure and Planning website on pool safety.
