Commonly asked spa & pool fencing safety + inspections questions

What is the new legislation?

The Amendment to the Building Regulations 2018 incorporating new Pool and Spa regulations has been released. The amended regulations have come into effect on 1st December 2019 and the introduction is widely affecting many property owners and occupiers.

The proposed implementation period required owners of existing swimming pools and spas to take action by 1st November 2020.

Owners of all swimming pools and spas were required to be registered with your local council  by 1st November 2020. If the deadline was missed we recommend. Immediately registering with the local council to avoid fines.

Then an inspection is required to be conducted and a certification issued by a Registered Building Surveyor or Registered Pool inspector under the following timelines:

For pools and spas constructed 30th June 1994 or earlier: Inspected and certified on or before 1st June 2022
For pools and spas constructed between 1st July 1994 and 1st May 2010: Inspected and certified on or before 1st June 2023.
For pools and spas constructed between 1st May 2010 to 31st October 2020: Inspected and certified on or before 1st June 2024

Why is it necessary?

The only reason that the legislation was brought in was to improve the safety & security around spas and pools. Compliance checks will help to safeguard against major accidents & drownings at your property.

How often do I need to do the inspection?

Every 4 years

How long does the inspection take?

It’s fairly straightforward, so please allow for 30-45 minute for your inspection

Do I even need a barrier?

If you have one of these, then yes!

All swimming pools and spas containing water greater than 300 mm (30 cm) must have a compliant safety barrier to restrict access to the pool area by young children. In-ground pools and spas, above-ground pools and spas, including inflatable pools, holding more than 300 mm (30 cm) of water, indoor pools and spas, bathing and wading pools containing more than 300 mm (30 cm) of water.

If you’ve got one of these, then no.

Bird baths, fountains, water supply/storage tanks, fish ponds, dams, baths used for personal hygiene and emptied after each use, spas inside a building (e.g. in a bathroom) used for personal hygiene and emptied after each use, pools or spas that cannot contain a water depth of more than 300 mm, inflatable swimming pools (typically toddler or wading pools) that cannot contain a water depth greater than 300 mm.


Very impressed. They left me with considerable knowledge of our new heating/AC system.
