IS YOUR POOL COMPLIANT?

27-Apr-2016
Source: Real Estate Institute NSW



From the 29th April this year, all properties in NSW with a swimming pool cannot be sold or leased without a valid certificate of compliance or a relevant occupation certificate.



You also require a certificate of registration showing registration of the pool on the NSW Swimming Pool Register.



If you don’t know whether you have a current certificate of compliance or if your pool has been registered, you can check by accessing the Swimming Pool Register online at bit.ly/poolcompliance and selecting “Lookup Pool”.



Need a certificate of compliance? Local councils and accredited certifiers registered with the Building Professionals Board can carry out an inspection for you and issue a certificate of compliance if your swimming pool or spa pool meets all the safety requirements.



Not sure if your pool is compliant? Owners of swimming pools must comply with the government’s safety standards. The NSW Swimming Pool Register provides a number of pool inspection self-assessment checklists to help you. Head online to bit.ly/poolinspectionchecklists to find the right checklist for your pool.
