New Queensland Pool Safety Laws start 1st December 2010 - Today

The Queensland Government has introduced new pool safety laws aimed at reducing the numbers of children drowning in Queensland swimming pools. These laws affect new and existing pools.

Stage 2 of the new laws commence on 1 December 2010.

There is a vast range of information and resources available on the Queensland Governments Department of Infrastructure and Planning Website.

From 1 December 2010, pool safety certificates are required when selling or leasing a property with a pool. Pool safety certificates must be obtained from a licensed pool safety inspector. Information for pool owners, pool safety inspectors and pool safety inspector course providers is available on the Department of Infrastructure and Planning website:

All properties with regulated pools need to be included in the state-based pool safety register by May 2011. Initially Local Governments are including details of pools on the register. Pool owners will need to check the register to ensure their pool is registered.
