The online pool register is now available. Please go to www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au to register your pool.
Through the registration process a self assessment and statement is required that to the best of your knowledge your pool complies with Australian Standards.
For further information see the Department of Local Government’s dedicated swimming pool webpage at http://tinyurl.com/2vafwct. On this page are links to a Swimming Pool Safety Checklist and a brochure on the swimming pool laws.
If you are thinking of selling your home, as of 29 October 2013 your conveyancer shall be required to include a copy of the certificate of compliance with respect to the pool in the Contract for Sale.
So, if you have a pool, don’t wait, register now.
A $220.00 penalty will be imposed on those failing to register their pool by 28 October 2013.Share
