Swimming pool fencing

Pool safety legislation - Stage 2

The Queensland State Government introduced new legislation for all regulated swimming pools on 1 December 2010. The legislation is aimed at reducing the number of immersion injuries and drownings of young children.

What do I have to do as a pool owner?

  • Register your pool on the Pool Safety Register.
  • Ensure your pool fencing complies with the new pool safety standard before 30 November 2015.
