What happens if I fail to comply?

You're responsible for registration and inspections of your pool, spa or safety barrier. There are fines for non-compliance. Learn more.

You're responsible for registration and inspections of your pool or spa safety barrier to ensure they continue to meet safety regulations.

If you don't comply with our directions to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations, we may refer the matter to a magistrate.

Fees

Non-compliance - if the inspector finds an issue with your pool or spa safety barriers and the issue isn't resolved within 60 days, you may receive a Certificate of Non-Compliance. A fee of $385 applies in this instance.

The building surveyor or inspector who inspects your pool or spa may charge an inspection fee. As this is a commercial fee, we can't control how much the service provider charges for their services. We encourage you to source multiple quotes.
